Garden Walk

Save the Date

Join us Sunday, June 25, 2017, noon to 5 pm, for Evanston’s 28th annual Garden Walk—a showcase of eight private gardens, plus a secluded, fully landscaped residential pond hidden within a condominium community.

A Sneak Preview

A sneak peek at just a few of the eight private gardens includes:

  • Two formal European-style gardens laden with topiaries, clipped hedges, magnificent containers, and hide-away garden rooms.
  • A creative re-imagining of what a new owner did to remodel a former garden designer’s close-to-the-lake garden.
  • A passionate gardener’s “built by hand” garden that incorporates heritage, family mementoes, ornamental plants, boxed veggie beds, with a welcoming neighborhood appeal.
  • A front, completely naturalistic garden designed exclusively for birds, butterflies, and pollinating insects.

Proceeds Go to the EEA

Proceeds from the Garden Walk benefit the educational programs of the Evanston Environmental Association.

Please join us, rain or shine, on June 25, 2017, for a walk through some of the most creative, beautiful, and personal gardens Evanston has to offer. Most gardens are accessible, although steep inclines and steps do occur in some. Maps are provided.
