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)

Park Hill Garden Walk 2011

Park Hill has a lot of wonderful features and activities that make this neighborhood great. But what shows off the heart and essence of Park Hill is the Park Hill Garden Walk. Scheduled June 25th from 10-4, this year’s Garden Walk will once again bring out our best as a neighborhood. It’s not only the opportunity to peek behind those fences but get out the bike, mingle with the neighbors or just stop and smell the roses for a day. Whether you are a Master Gardener, a dabbler in vegetables or just want to dust off your green thumb muse, there is a garden for everyone this year.

While Mother Nature created the canvas, it is our gardeners who have created the flora artwork. This year, the Park Hill Garden Walk features 14 fabulous gardens. Your brochure-ticket is your key to creatively constructed hardscape, water ponds, a plethora of annuals and perennials, professionally landscaped gardens, and knowledgeable homeowners ready to open their gates and share their palettes. And speaking of palettes! We have some talented artisans featured in each garden too. For the other spelling of ‘palate’, sample some wine at one garden on the tour!

Purchase tickets at Park Hill Library, Moss Pink at 4615 E. 23rd, or online at gphc.org and start the tour at 1980 Dahlia St., which is Montview Presbyterian Church. See how they’ve created a lovely area for fellowship. You will also find your Park Hill Garden Walk 2011 collectible pin at this location along with information booths, Garden Walk posters for sale, and refreshments. For those who want to procrastinate on ticket purchases, we’ve got you covered; tickets also available the day of at 1980 Dahlia. Please help the Park Hill Food Bank by bringing non-perishable food items to this first garden and be able to enter the drawing for fabulous gift certificates and donations from our in-kind sponsors.
