The Secret Gardens of Lake Forest Park Garden Tour & Market is an opportunity to peek behind the gates of some of the best gardens in the North end. Every year garden scouts look for gardens to delight visitors. This year the gardens are amazing. Each garden provides a look at creative ways to imagine gardening. The gardens include a plant collector’s haven, a contemporary garden with innovative solutions, one with enticing garden rooms, another that shows off a natural woodland with plantings from Heronswood. The gardens have tucked-away treasures, artwork and unique sheds that serve the dual purposes of storage and art.
