Promoting Neighborhood Beautification!

River Park neighborhood, Sacramento, California 

“Special Garden Spaces” Tour Coming Up!

These are just two of the six very personal gardens that will be on the River Park Garden Club’s fourth annual neighborhood garden tour, “Special Garden Spaces.”

The self-guided tour, Saturday. April 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will include six diverse River Park backyard gardens. Tickets are $5. Children under 15, free. (Children are welcome, but strollers will NOT be allowed in gardens.)

The tour will also feature a large garden made for entertaining as well as self-reflection. It has its own meditation platform. The smallest garden has a big heart with elegant plant vignettes that include pots handmade by the owner’s grandchildren. Antique farm equipment in another of the gardens, serves as trellises and interesting notes along with a large modern greenhouse filled with bromeliads.

Friendly koi in a pond surrounded by fruit trees, succulents, perennials, veggies and garden sculpture. A made-in-the-shade garden with an artist’s studio, summer outdoor living spaces and specimen Japanese maples.

Tickets may be purchased on the day of the tour, beginning at 9:45 a.m. at the ticket table located at 5457 Carlson on the Caleb-Greenwood School lawn. Tickets may also be reserved ahead by calling 916-454-5637.

The sixth garden combines exotic herbs, greens, vegetables, fruit trees and a beautiful rose garden. Everything in this garden is grown from seeds or cuttings! Talk about having a green thumb!

In addition to the gardens, there will be an artists’ boutique featuring garden-oriented art and crafts. For more information, go to:
