South Buffalo Alive’s 16th annual Garden Tour, showcasing approximately 50 beautiful properties throughout South Buffalo and the Old First Ward neighborhood, will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, July 17.
The Garden Tour includes a wide variety of homes and businesses showcasing amazing gardens, landscaping and other outdoor features. There are several first-time stops on this year’s self-guided tour, according to South Buffalo Alive’s Marge Ryan.
Tours begin at Tim Russert’s Children’s Garden located at 2002 South Park Ave., between Choate and Whitfield avenues and next to the Dudley Library. Participants are encouraged to make this their first stop, where they will receive a tour brochure and information to make the tour very simple to follow.
Volunteers will be on location from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. While the self-guided walking, biking or driving tour is free of charge, a suggested donation of $2 or more per person to South Buffalo Alive would be greatly appreciated.
