"Secret Gardens" Fourth Ward Tour TAKEOVER

On May 3rd (& 4th), from Noon to 4 pm each day, the Friends of Fourth Ward will host the Secret Gardens of Fourth Ward. Homeowners on the tour will open their lovingly-tended and rarely-seen private gardens to the public – revealing the secret green worlds tucked behind courtyard walls. Tour-goers will enjoy two days of discovering these hidden gems, while strolling the brick-paved sidewalks of this charming neighborhood in full bloom and experiencing all that our vibrant Center City has to offer. In addition to the featured gardens, the tour will highlight public art, historic homes and special points of interest along the tour route, effectively making all of Historic Fourth Ward – and the extraordinary quality of life it offers – part of the tour. 

This walkable, self-guided tour includes admission to a variety of private gardens, as well as docent-led tours of Fourth Ward Park. Additional tour attractions include: free Craft Cocktail & Champagne tasting stations, courtesy of Skyy Vodka, Hendrick’s Gin, St. Germain & more; free B-Cycle and horse-drawn carriage rides; free food tastings from Fourth Ward Bread Co., and special complimentary “tour-only” appetizers at nearby restaurants, including 3 Trade and Rock Bottom Brewery; and special garden-themed activities and products at the 7th Street Public Market. Horse-drawn carriages will provide free shuttle service between the Market and Fourth Ward during tour hours.For tickets ($20) & more info: www.fofw.org . Proceeds benefit projects within Fourth Ward and Fourth Ward Park. (Additionally, Fourth Ward is partnering with the Regional AIDS Interfaith Network, and donating a portion of proceeds to “RAIN”.
