The annual Prospect Park Garden Walk and Plant Sale will be held Saturday, June 24, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Garden Walk is free.
The walk will follow East River Road and East River Terrace with some of the most fabulous gardens in the neighborhood. A few of them have never been on the walk before.
Garden Walk maps and descriptions of the featured gardens will be available on the Prospect Park neighborhood web page at pperr.org/events. Printed maps will be available the week before the Garden Walk at Prospect Park businesses, Schneider Drugstore, the Textile Center, Signature Café, Dunn Brothers (next to the Westgate light rail stop), and the Hub City Café and T-Rex Cookie (formerly Cupcake). You can also pick up a map on the day of the walk at the plant sale, which will be held in the parking lot at St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church, 1500 E. Franklin Ave., Minneapolis. The entrance to the parking lot is on Franklin Avenue.
The sale will offer perennial and annual flowers, foliage, fruit and vegetable plants, and shrubs. The sale is a fundraiser for the Prospect Park Garden Club’s neighborhood programs, including maintaining the pocket-park plantings and buckthorn eradication.
The Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis, identified by the landmark Witch’s Hat Tower, is located east of the Mississippi River, just west of Highway 280 along University and Franklin avenues and East River Parkway.
