Events - Prospect Park Garden Walk & Plant Sale (Summer)
The 15th annual Prospect Park Garden Walk and Plant Sale will be held on Saturday, June 23, 2012 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. (Rain or shine!) We’ll be holding our plant sale at St. Frances Cabrini Church (1500 SE Franklin Ave.).
The Garden Walk is free. You’ll be able to tour approximately 20 local gardens that cover a variety of garden types: perennial and annual, vegetable and flower, shade and sun. Besides viewing front yards, you’ll be invited to view waterfalls and ponds in some backyards! Expect to see the innovative use of space and growing conditions, especially shade (which Prospect Park has in abundance).
The Plant Sale will be located outside St. Frances Cabrini Church (1500 SE Franklin Ave.). The plant sale is a fund raiser for the programs that the Garden Club supports such as buckthorn removal and flower plantings at the triangles and at Pratt Elementary School.
Pick up a map on the day of the Garden Walk and Plant Sale at any of these locations: St. Frances Cabrini Church (1500 SE Franklin Ave.), Schneider Drug (3400 SE University Ave.), Signature Café (130 SE Warwick St.), Cupcake (3338 SE University Ave.), or Overflow Espresso Café (2929 SE University Ave).

The Prospect Park Garden Walks began in 1996 and continued through 2003. There were no Garden Walks in 2004 or 2005. The Garden Walks resumed in 2006.
