French Quarter Gardens on Tour May 28
Patio Planters of the Vieux Carre Offer Peek into Private Courtyards
For decades, visitors and locals alike have flocked to the Vieux Carre for the annual Secret Garden Tour to discover magnificent private gardens and courtyards not generally accessible to the public. This treasured ritual returns on Saturday, May 28, for one day only from 12 noon until 4 pm.
French Quarter homeowners are again collaborating with Patio Planters to open a minimum of six gardens and courtyards for viewing during a self-guided walking tour. The casual stroll offers a glimpse into how designers and residents take advantage of small spaces, adorned with greenery and flora to provide cool hideaways suited to the New Orleans climate in styles of early Spanish and French architecture. Locations of featured gardens and courtyards will be specified on a map given to participants when Secret Garden tickets are picked up. The event is rain or shine.
Advance tickets are strongly encouraged due to limited capacity. Tickets may be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/
This outdoor tour includes charming gardens and courtyards only, with no access to homes or indoor spaces. Due to narrow entrances, maneuvering strollers or wheelchairs may be difficult.
