40+ gardens plus live music and fun
The NNA hopes that you will join them for their 10th Annual Northcenter Garden Walk, on Sunday, June 26, from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m around Northcenter! The event will feature more than 40 unique gardens and outdoor spaces.
“Northcenter gardens are full of beauty, creativity, inspiration and even surprise,”said Karen Carter Lynch, Northcenter Garden Walk organizer and NNA Board Member. “Each year, our event draws more visitors because there’s so much to enjoy in our neighborhood: live music, lemonade stands, pedicab rides, and a plethora of delightful urban gardens.”
The self-guided garden tour will begin at Alexander Graham Bell School at 3730 N. Oakley St. (at Grace St.), where maps can be picked up. A suggested donation of $5 will benefit the Common Pantry. Seniors are free.
The Northcenter Garden Walk also will feature live rock, jazz and blues music from local bands and musicians including Annalise and the Backsliders, Kick Bricks, Heather Riordan, Ray Quinn and Brian Wilke, and Jugo de Mango.
Pedicab rides will be available to take senior walkers from location to location provided by JBL Pedicab Management. They depart from Bell School at 3730 N. Oakley St.
