The East Side Garden Walk is Saturday, July 17

The East Side Garden Walk (ESGW) is a free, self-guided tour that brings visitors who share a love of gardening into the creative gardens of Buffalo’s East Side neighborhoods – explore Masten Park, Willert Park, Emslie, Lovejoy, Emerson, Schiller Park, Grider, Cold Springs, the Fruit Belt, Larkin, Hamlin Park, Kensington, Leroy, Lasalle and many more.

More than a garden tour, the ESGW is a way for residents to take control of the narrative for its community. They share gardens, stories, and a spirit of perseverance with those from within and outside its neighborhood – countering the negative stigma often portrayed on the news – by creating positive stories. Love of gardening and community creates connections between gardeners, neighbors, and visitors. The ESGW transforms its neighborhoods by providing a spotlight for residents to “show out” and by encouraging everyone to be the change, because this community matters.
