Day Trip: Royalty for a Day – Balmoral Tea Service & Fabyan Japanese Gardens

May 9, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 5:30 pm

Sec.# Day Date Time Fee
01 Wed. 5/9 TBD $85/$90 (1 day)

Just like the Royal Family does while visiting their estate in Scotland, we will have our own High Tea at the Balmoral Restaurant in Campton Hills. Tea service includes a wide variety of items including: biscuits, scones, shortbreads, finger sandwiches, clotted cream with fresh jam and more! Royalty loves nothing more than strolling beautiful gardens. After High Tea we will take in the history and design of the Fabyan Japanese Gardens in Batavia. These historic gardens offer the opportunity to experience the uniqueness of Japanese gardening and enjoy a moment of harmony with nature while strolling the winding path of this 100-year-old site. Considerable walking and standing is involved with this trip. Registration deadline: April 25 (spaces permitting).  Transportation provided via park district van.
