INDIANAPOLIS—In celebration of summer’s arrival, the Eagle Creek Park Foundation will kick off the season with its inaugural Eagle Creek Park Foundation Garden Tour. The Garden Tour will span across the west side of Indianapolis and showcase beautiful works of art from some of the area’s finest garden experts. The Eagle Creek Garden Tour will take place Saturday, June 11, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., rain or shine.

Horticultural lovers are invited to follow along on this trail of beauty in and around Eagle Creek Park. All proceeds from this event will directly benefit the Eagle Creek Park Foundation’s efforts of preserving the park.

Located at one of the nation’s 10 largest city parks, this year’s Tour will feature a Reservoir waterfront with a classic British heritage, a whimsical Brownsburg hideaway, a professional design by Eagle Creek Nursery in the Golden Hill neighborhood, and the elegant centerpiece – Eagle Creek Park’s world-class nature center, the Earth Discovery Center (EDC), maintained and hosted by Eagle Creek Park’s volunteer gardeners. The EDC features a native prairie entrance, butterfly garden, and a geothermal pond.

This tour is self-directed and all attendees will receive a map prior to the event. Tour guests will only be permitted to enter the gardens during the operating hours of the Garden Tour and should not attempt to enter the properties before or after the official date. With the purchase of a Garden Tour ticket you’ll have free-range to explore Eagle Creek Park and experience the resilience of Indianapolis gardeners. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 for Eagle Creek Park Foundation members. A ticket is required for each guest wishing to visit the gardens. Tickets can be purchased at http://eaglecreekpark.org/event/garden-tourfundraiser/.
