Garden Walk will be here soon!

I want to make a pitch for the upcoming Garden Walk, Sunday, June 25, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. I went on the garden walk for the first time last year, after eight years of living in Oak Park, and I really wish I’d gone every year.

The $15 ticket is probably the best investment you can make in your garden this year, because it’ll give you a chance to see what’s working in gardens in our area. Bring a notebook and something to take photos with, because you’re bound to get a host of ideas for your own space. Bring a bottle of water and a friend for a fun outing! Kids welcome.

Nine gardens (big and small) and one community space will be featured in this self-guided tour throughout the villages of Oak Park and River Forest.

Advance ticket sales on this site is now closed.  Tickets may be purchased, $20 at the Oak Park Conservatory or Cheney Mansion. Proceeds go to support college scholarships for OPRF high school students!
