 Annual Northcenter Garden Walk

Our annual self-guided walking tour of Northcenter gardens and outdoor spaces will feature over 40 homes in addition to live music from local bands and musicians and more surprises!

The self-guided 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 Annalise and the Backsliders, Kick Bricks, Heather Riordan, Ray Quinn and Brian Wilke, and Jugo de Mango.

Participate in our Garden Walk Instagram Challenge!

Follow us @nnaneighbor on Instagram. Take pictures of your experience of the outdoor spaces throughout the day using #NNAGardenWalk and tag @nnaneighbor in the post! At the end of the day, the person who has tagged @nnaneighbor on Instagram in the most posts will receive a $30 gift certificate to Gethsemane Gardens.

Pedicab rides will be available to take senior walkers from location to location provided by JBL Pedicab Management. They depart from Bell School at 3730 N. Oakley St.

Garden Registration is Now Closed.

Still interested in getting involved? Here are a couple of ways:

We need a street team to start posting posters, a registration team for the day of the garden walk, and a social media team to help promote, comment, like, share. If you can help with any of these, we’d so greatly appreciate it!

Lemonade Stands 
A great way to serve our garden walkers but also get the kids involved! We have a tradition of having lemonade stands and either donating the proceeds to the Common Pantry or another cause close to your heart. Let us know and we'll make announcements about your stand on the day!

Please email if you would like to participate in any of the above options.

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. 

We hope you’ll join us in this wonderful, neighborhood tradition. By sharing your garden, coming out for the walk, volunteering, or sharing your talents, you help create a day where neighbors and friends interact and connect through beauty, nature and music.

We hope to see you there - rain or shine!
