The Riverside Avondale Preservation Garden Tour returns on Saturday, May 13, from 10 AM to 4 PM. This special event brings neighbors and businesses together to share the transformative nature of front yards, backyards, gardens and landscapes that are sure to give inspiration and encourage budding gardening ideas to bloom. Tour admission includes access to several backyards with varying garden styles, some even featuring live music, refreshments, and activities. Flower gardens, vegetable gardens, native yards and beautiful backyards make this tour a great way to spend a Saturday–perhaps with Mom for Mother’s Day!
General Admission is self-guided, although guided tours are available through Go Tuk'n, Art Bikes Jax, and via the Bicycle Tour led by ZenCog. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 day of event.
