Longue Vue’s gardens are the masterwork of 20th-century landscape architect Ellen Biddle Shipman: a visionary designer, intrepid female entrepreneur, and dear friend to Longue Vue founders Edith and Edgar Stern. In 1968, Edith opened the gardens of Longue Vue to the public, so the entire community could experience them. Our job today is simple: Continue sharing Shipman’s design legacy with new audiences, from expert horticulturists to local families.
Volunteer in the Gardens!
We can always use your help! For decades, garden volunteers have worked along side our gardeners on many large projects that have been vital to Longue Vue’s survival. Garden Volunteers meet every Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and every second Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
