Please join us at noon on Sunday as we wander the secret gardens of the Sheffield/Depaul Neighborhood!
There is a $7 donation required to tour the gardens, payable at the gate to the festival organizers. This is not a Windy City Explorers charge.
This is one of our coolest events because of the access to dozens of "secret gardens" in the backyards of private homes!
Look for our group right in front of the church at noon. Feel free to call or text Tom's cellphone if you are running late. (312) 725-0223.
Come explore the Lincoln Park/DePaul neighborhood during the 45th Annual Sheffield Garden Walk! I have done this before and can attest to some beautiful secret urban gardens at these homes.
We'll meet at noon in front of St. Vincent DePaul Church and grab a bite to eat before we head out on a tour of the gardens. Because of the tight quarters in these private gardens, we will break up into groups of ten or so as we tour the area. We would never fit as a large group into these gardens.... but we will spread out and walk along together on the route.
Some of you may wish to attend a couple of excellent architectural tours that will be running during the festival. Those tours are offered by the festival organizers starting at 1pm and 3pm. You need to arrive at the festival and sign up for those tours at a specific booth. Check the festival link below for specific information, on the page labeled "Architectural Tours":
