Pick-your-own flowers at Stevens Coolidge Place

The Trustees of Reservations has launched a new pick-your-own flower field in the former vegetable garden at the Stevens-Coolidge Place.

Known for its collection of formal gardens, the Stevens-Coolidge Place in North Andover served as the summer home of John Gardner Coolidge and Helen Stevens Coolidge. Now owned and managed by The Trustees of Reservations, the property is open to the public daily, dawn to dusk.

The new flower field is child friendly, with pick your own hours available on Fridays and Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., according to a release from the Trustees of Reservations. Bouquets are $7 for an adult size, $3 for a child size.

Parking is available across the street in the parking lot on the corner of Chestnut and Andover streets.
