Hovey Pond Gardens

Robert Eddy Botanical Garden

The Gardens in August 07

Hovey Pond Park is located in the Town of Queensbury on Lafayette St (behind the saturn dealership on Quaker rd)
The Hovey Pond Gardens were conceived by Robert Eddy, first chariman of the Town of Queensbury Beautification Committee. They are modeled after British Gardens that Mr. Eddy visited and used as a basis for design. Mr. Eddy  at age 96 decided that 2006 would be his last season working at the garden. Mr Eddy passed away in April 2007. All of us who volunteer at the garden will continue to work hard to make the garden an enjoyable place to visit. 
We have done extensive renovations of the garden this season including adding and changing paths to make the garden more 'user friendly'. We have also added planters (2 granite ones that were favorites of Mr Eddy) and lots of new plant materials including small trees and shrubs to encourage birds. We hope to begin installing birdhouses soon.

Friends of Hovey Pond is the not for profit organization that is responsible for the Gardens. We receive no public funding. The Gardens are maintained entirely by volunteers . We meet each Wednesday from April (weather permitting) until October, from about 9:00  am- 2:00 pm.  If you are interested in joining us please stop by any wednesday that you have time to help.
Whether you join us for a half hour or for the day, we would greatly appreciate your help!

If you would like to make a monetary donation to help us purchase plants, tools or equipment we would be very grateful-The mailing address appears at the bottom of the page
