BAPA Garden Walk #3 Blooms in July 


BAPA will host the 3rd Annual Beverly/Morgan Park Garden Walk on Sun., July 10, 12 to 5 p.m., with a rain date of July 17.  

The Garden Walk will begin with check-in at the Edna White Community Garden, 1850 W. Monterey Ave., where people are welcome to walk among the beautiful plantings, observe butterflies and bees from the new observatory, and visit with vendors and sponsors.  

Featured gardens are located throughout the neighborhood. Each stop is distinctive for its style, variety of plantings, and unique beauty. Whether you’re going home to a sunny or shady yard, a mature garden or a freshly dug flower bed, you’ll be inspired by the hard work, creative vision and delight shared by local gardeners.  

Among the private spots being showcased are a dazzling, multi- garden yard with a beautiful and practical rain garden; an inspiring yard with a true urban farm that supplies produce to a nearby food pantry; an enchanting shade garden that combines unusual conifers with lovely statuary; a delightful yard with colorful eclectic art and a wide variety of plants and flowers; and more.   

In addition to touring some of the area’s most beautiful gardens, the event includes an array of garden experiences including beverage and food tastings from local restaurants and shops, and entertainment.   

Garden Walk tickets are $30 in advance at and $35 on the day of the event.
