The Ed­mon­ton Gar­den Tour July 16 and 17

This is the most pop­u­lar event of the year and the per­fect way to spend a sum­mer week­end in July. Tour some of the Ed­mon­ton area’s best gar­dens, chat with their gar­den­ers, learn what grows here, get de­sign and plant­ing ideas and soak up the beauty

Each year’s tour is self-guided. Your ticket will in­clude the gar­dens, their ad­dresses with driv­ing di­rec­tions, and a brief de­scrip­tion of what makes each gar­den spe­cial. Start where you choose and pro­ceed at your own pace. The tour goes rain or shine.

The gar­dens are cho­sen for qual­ity and va­ri­ety. Their gar­den­ers are pas­sion­ate and ready to wel­come vis­i­tors. Each gar­den has a par­tic­u­lar charm and spe­cial fea­tures, many are award-win­ning gar­dens.

This event is not to be missed if you en­joy gar­dens and beau­ti­ful plants. Make a day or a week­end of it. In­vite a friend or two to join you. Stop for lunch at a favourite restau­rant along the route. Take time to really en­joy each gar­den. Please show your ap­pre­ci­a­tion by fol­low­ing ap­pro­pri­ate gar­den eti­quette.

Get your tick­ets early as they of­ten sell out! Don’t be dis­ap­pointed. Tick­ets also avail­able on­line from mid­june un­til July 10, while sup­plies last. ed­mon­ton­hort.com
