2019 Annual Garden Walk

Oak Park River Forest Garden Walk – June 23, 2019

The Garden Club of Oak Park and River Forest and the Friends of the Oak Park Conservatory (FOPCON) will be holding their 26th Annual Garden Walk on Sunday, June 23, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. rain or shine. Make note of the date and prepare for an exciting self-guided tour of eight unique gardens plus a public space. Transportation is needed from one garden to another: bicycles are a good option. Once again “plein air” artists will be demonstrating their amazing creativity in some of the gardens. Garden Guide booklets will be used for your self-guided tour. The Garden Guide includes a map and a description of each garden on the 2019 Garden Walk. Master gardeners will also be available to answer your gardening questions.

Online ticket purchases will be available on this website, www.gcoprf.org, from May 1st until 4:00 p.m., June 22, 2019 for $15 each. Member discounts are not available online.  Tickets will not be mailed.  Use your PayPal receipt to exchange for a Garden Guide.
