The annual Secret Gardens of Lake Forest Park Garden Tour features five or six beautiful, private gardens in the City of Lake Forest Park. Once a year, for one day only, these unique and often spectacular local gardens are opened to the public as part of this tour.
Purchase tickets in advance at local garden centers or online and exchange the advance ticket for a map of the six gardens on the date of the event in the lower level of Lake Forest Park Town Center. Same day tickets can be purchased in person there as well.
Ticket holders can visit the gardens in any order.
What you can look forward to in each garden:
Artists and musicians will work and perform at each garden. Master Gardeners will also be on hand in each garden to answer your gardening questions. Master Gardeners is a program of WSU.
Master Gardener volunteers teach local community members to:
- Manage their gardens and landscapes in a science-based, sustainable manner;
- Address environmental and social priorities such as water conservation and water quality protection;
- Reduce the impact of invasive species; and
- Increase public awareness of healthy living through gardening.
Master Gardeners also enhance communities through demonstration gardens and donation of produce to local food banks.
