Central District Garden Tour returns this Saturday

When we first moved to the neighborhood way back in the ’90s, one of the first community events we remember attending was the garden tour. We got a map that led us on a walking tour to new areas of the neighborhood where individual residents had opened up their private gardens, allowing their neighbors to take a look at their work.

It was fascinating to see how many beautiful spaces there were around the neighborhood, and we picked up some cool new ideas on how to spruce up our little courtyard spaces. And we met a bunch of neighbors along the way, including one guy just down the block.

After a long hiatus, the Garden Tour returns to the neighborhood this Saturday from 11am to 4pm. And CDNews is proud to be a sponsor of the event.

Tickets are a very affordable $5 each in advance, and you can get them online from Central Cinema.

All proceeds from the tour go to a new project to create public art around the CD, which will get under way late this year.

Get a ticket today, and we’ll see you out there on Saturday.

  1. While tours in years past had a good clustering of gardens, making them mostly walkable from start to finish, this year’s might require transportation other than just feet. The 12 gardens go from Cherry to the Arboretum, but are still clustered in groups of 3 and 4 when you get to each area. Here’s hoping for a little sunshine the day of the tour!
