Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 11, 2014
The Northcenter Neighborhood Association (NNA) today announces that the 8th Annual Northcenter Garden Walk will be held on Sunday, June 22, from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The event will feature more than 40 unique gardens and outdoor spaces.
“Northcenter gardens are full of beauty, creativity, inspiration and even surprise,” said Karen Carter Lynch, Northcenter Garden Walk organizer and NNA Board Member. “Each year, our event draws more visitors because there’s so much to enjoy in our neighborhood: live music, lemonade stands, pedicab rides, and a plethora of delightful urban gardens.”
The self-guided garden tour will begin at Alexander Graham Bell School at 3730 N. Oakley St. (at Grace St.), where maps can be picked up. A suggested donation of $5 will benefit the Common Pantry. Seniors are free.
The Northcenter Garden Walk also will feature live rock, jazz and blues music from local bands and musicians including Nobody Nobody Sent, St. Jams Band, Jason Miller, Heather Riordan and the Quinn family.
The boundaries of the Northcenter Neighborhood Association are Addison on the south, the Chicago River on the west, Montrose on the north, and Ravenswood on the east. For more information, visit http://www.northcenterneighborhood.org.
