Garden Walk

Save the Date

Join us Sunday, June 23, 2019, for the 30th Anniversary of Evanston’s Garden Walk– showcasing 9 private and public gardens, including a hidden garden from 1915 that is on the National Registry of Historic Places.


  • A sunny duplex in northwest Evanston shows what happens when the owners make two landscapes into an artful whole
  • The living is easy in the backyard of a classic Evanston lannon stone home landscaped for outdoor dining and just sitting and enjoying the view
  • A charming home from the 1800’s is landscaped to the curb with just the right sized plantings to frame the front entry and porch
  • A narrow, but elegant landscaping flows around the buildings of a condominium in an historically rich area of Evanston
  • A century-old garden listed on the National Register of Historic Places

Proceeds Go to the EEA

All proceeds from the Garden Walk help provide scholarships for children to attend the Evanston Ecology Center's summer camps and support their Apiary.

Please join us, rain or shine, on June 23, 2019, 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.
