Finally! We can visit wonderful landscapes on several garden walks this weekend.

Please be good to the folks you may meet on the garden walks–your fellow visitors and the generous folks who are opening up their gardens to you– by always using safety etiquette.

  • Keep six feet away from others.
  • Wearing a mask is a good idea, too, even though you’re outside.
  • Try not to touch things in the yards.
  • Take a bottle of hand sanitizer with you.

  1. Darlene, click on the name of the garden walk you want to visit. That will take you to information about that walk on the Gardens Buffalo Niagara website. You will find information there on where to get the map.

  2. where do I get the map of the places to visit, ? I can’t find it on her

  3. Linda, I have made the changes to my Events page. You can check them to make sure they are correct. I’ll pass them along to the folks at Gardens Buffalo Niagara. With everything that has been going on since March, it’s remarkable that so many gardening activities are going on. We appreciate all the volunteers who have done such wonderful work!

  4. For both the Samuel P. Capen Garden Walk and Capen by Night-the UHAA-St.Andrew Sculpture Garden will be closed. Maps can be downloaded at
    Capen by Night is 8pm-10pm. I apologize for the incorrect information.
