The 2024 7th Annual GardenWalk South Euclid will take place on Saturday, June 22, and Sunday, June 23 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. IT IS THE ANNUAL COMMEMORATION OF THE CITY’S 100th YEAR CELEBRATION!
This year’s event will include 60+ residential gardens, a 21-acre nature preserve, a 9-mile wetland, a Sanctuary on Green, 8 neighborhood community gardens, a raised bed community garden with a senior exercise area and respite, and 3 perennial neighborhood ‘pocket’ parks. New, must-see gardens have opened for this year’s event. The South Euclid Poet Laureate has assembled a team to compose poems about each garden that will be available at each location with copies to take!
Last year’s event was a momentous success. Visitor Fran Pursell of Moreland Hills wrote: “Of the gardens we viewed, three stood out. The first exuded boundless enthusiasm and joy. An endless number of potted annuals were arranged among mature perennials, trees, and shrubs. Garden glass, gazing globes, and stained-glass windows punctuated the individual areas. In the second, a dense concentration of plants and ornaments made every garden inch count. Each ‘room’ provided its own colorful sitting/relaxing space. And the third, a large deep lot, offered tasteful, carefully edited, contemporary stone sculptures along with pleasing natural elements.”
Joie Daniel of Chagrin Falls commented “It was like a fairy tale—so many differing gardens—all beautiful in their own ways. I enjoyed meeting the gardeners and other visitors, everyone talking so enthusiastically about what they did and how they did it. Their passion, or their wonderful addiction, as one put it, was evident and infectious.”
Garden maps will be available after June 15th at the Community Center, South Euclid Library, and online at www.gardenwalksoutheuclid.com. On the day of the event at South Euclid Library, www.gardenwalksoutheuclid.com, and several gardens.
