Six beautiful gardens will be on tour stretching from historic Old Town Forest Grove to the modern Forest Gale Heights neighborhood. Learn artistic ways to garden in small spaces, how to tackle a giant slope, and how to create a yard with something for the whole family. Experience the joys of the old days with “games of years gone by.” Each of the gardens will take you back to easy-going summer days by featuring displays of vintage boardgames like Monopoly, Clue, and Parcheesi and lawn games like croquet and badminton, with a brief history and the rules of each.

Meet at the Old Train Station on the corner of 19th and Main in downtown Forest Grove to get your ticket and map to the location of the gardens featured on the tour this year. Visitors will also be able to go on a free tour of the Old Train Station — a history museum maintained by Friends of Historic Forest Grove hosting many old photos and other interesting displays from the local area — as well as a tour of Abigail’s Garden at the A. T. Smith House, a new addition to the old historic home built in 1854.

Please note that because these are gardens and yards of private residences, this tour may not be ADA compliant. However, we believe that most of the tour is accessible for persons with wheelchairs and other walking assistant devices.
