For 12 years the Park Hill Garden Walk has brought neighbors and lovers of gardening together. Home owners open their gardens to ticketed visitors to share their love of gardening and perhaps their expertise. All proceeds for the Walk go to the Greater Park Hill Community (GPHC)

Eleven Wonderful Gardens on Tour June 19, 2010

What better way to spend a beautiful summer day then strolling through delightful gardens on the 10th annual Park Hill Garden Tour? This year’s rain or shine event scheduled from 10 am to 4 pm has a collection of gardens with a variety of features you don’t want to miss. And now you won’t have to peak over fences and wonder what goes on in the neighbors’ yards!

Gardens with flowers, vegetables and trees of course but come see how homeowners create secret oasis’s in which to entertain, find a moment of peace or continue the growing season all twelve months. Water features, hardscape, urban farming and community gardening, composting and bees all are elements of the variety Park Hill Garden Walk offer you this year.

Gardeners will be on hand to share their passion for gardening so bring your notebooks and fill it with great ideas. The Park Hill Garden Walk gardens will also be host to 8 local artists sharing their work.
