Hidden Gardens & Private Spaces Tour 2018

Hidden Gardens & Private Spaces Tour

Presented by the Cabbagetown Preservation Association

Sunday, June 3, 2018, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Each ticket: $20

This tour continues to draw people from all across the GTA and beyond. The attraction for many is not only the unique and charming gardens found here but also the historic streets, alluring laneways, and Victorian architecture, from modest to grand. Toronto Master Gardeners are on site to answer questions and give advice about gardens often in small spaces, with towering shade trees and frequent visits from urban wildlife.

The Cabbagetown Preservation Association information booth (blue canopy) will be located at 89 Winchester Street (south side, west of Sackville Street) on the day of the tour. We will provide information, sell tour tickets and other CPA merchandise. Note that the first 150 people to visit the booth will be offered a pansy plant, courtesy of Blooming Flower Bar.

Visit the booth to get more information on the tour (and buy a ticket or exchange your voucher) or on CPA activities such as the Cabbagetown People Program, the Streetscapes in Bloom Award, the Peggy Kurtin Award Program or to buy tea towels or get or renew your CPA membership.

The ticket is a booklet that provides you with the address and a description of the gardens as well as information on how to access them. It includes a map and also contains special offers from local businesses: Eat! Shop!
