The Second Street Neighborhood Association


Saturday, June 10, & Sunday, June 11, 2017, 10 am - 5 pm

The second weekend of June each year Louisville offers glimpses into one of its best-kept secrets. The Old Louisville Hidden Treasures Garden Tour welcomes garden lovers into the private green spaces of the nation’s largest Victorian residential neighborhood. Old Louisville gardeners share the experience of their personal retreats tucked behind imposing Victorian homes and carriage houses and protected by vine-covered walls and privacy fences.

This tour is designed to be walked so that the visitor can experience the scale of Old Louisville residences and the peacefulness of its gardens. Because the neighborhood is large, each year the tour rotates to a different section of the neighborhood.

2017 Garden Tour tickets are $20 on the days of the tour, or $15 in advance. Seniors over 65, tickets are $15 in advance or day of tour.
