This tour is self-directed, you will receive a map prior to the event date. We kindly ask that you respect the privacy of those who have volunteered their homes for this tour and not attempt to enter any properties outside of the established hours. During tour hours, each garden will have volunteers present to check tickets. Every person who wants to enter a garden must have a ticket.

Highlights include a Reservoir waterfront with a classic British heritage, a whimsical Brownsburg hideaway, a woodland gem nestled deep inside West 86th, and a professional design by Eagle Creek Nursery in the Golden Hill neighborhood. The tour’s centerpiece is Eagle Creek Park’s world-class nature center: the Earth Discovery Center. Maintained and hosted by Eagle Creek Park’s volunteer gardeners, the EDC features a native prairie entrance, butterfly garden, and a geothermal pond.

Your Garden Tour ticket also covers your admittance to the park for that entire day. Once you have taken in the beauty of the gardens you can enjoy the many other amenities that Eagle Creek Park has to offer!

100% of the proceeds from this event directly benefit the Eagle Creek Park Foundation to help preserve, protect and enhance the park.
