This park is only in bloom for a short time in late April and early May, with Rhodies over three stories tall with fragrant blossoms of incredible size, as well as several rare varieties. It really is breathtaking to see! The event will be ‘weather permitting’ and will be “bring your own” picnic lunch. Some diversions will be provided, but guests are encouraged to bring games to share if they have them.

ORS events include:
Readings – We begin with the classics, Jane Austen, and get together to read from the novels—we enjoy tea, literature and polite company.
An afternoon in the drawing room – Crafty are you? Well, why not just sit around in period dresses, embroidering, drinking tea and gossiping? Ladies only, of course.
Teas—what better than to have a tea party? Invite your most handsome gentleman to share tea and share other fine society. Perhaps there will be dancing, perhaps simply cards. All in all, it’s good company with cakes and tea.
Parties—small evening gatherings which include dinner, cards, singing and piano (should anyone wish to display of course) and possible dancing.
Picnics—nothing appeals more than donning your spencer and your bonnet, and joining other friends to enjoy a picnic and a brisk walk.
Workshops—The art of letter writing; dance lessons, regency crafts.
Balls—A grand ball, where open invitation occurs to encourage society membership. Dining, dancing, good society and fun
