The Samuel P. Capen Garden Walk, which showcases gardens in the University District and surrounding communities, will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 11.

The tour is free.

Pick up maps at the UB Anderson Gallery, 1 Martha Jackson Place (off Englewood Avenue, south of Kenmore Avenue), Buffalo. You can also pick up maps until 2:30 p.m. at the University Community Farmers Market, Main Street at Kenmore Avenue, Buffalo. There is parking at both sites. A downloadable map will be available a few days before the walk at the Samuel P. Capen Garden Walk website.

There will be a complimentary shuttle provided by the University at Buffalo. The shuttle will stop at the map pick-up sites and various other spots that will be noted on the map.

New this year are tour guides on the shuttles who will answer questions and provide a little historical background and information about some of the Capen Garden Walk neighborhoods bordering the UB South Campus.

Also new this year is the Capturing the Garden photo contest and exhibition. Visitors can take photos during the walk and submit them by July 20 to the contest for free. There is a $50 cash prize. Participants will be included as part of the “Capturing the Garden” exhibition that will be held in August at Amy’s Place Restaurant, Buffalo Roots, Hydroponics and Organics, and Queen City Imaging as part of the University Heights Arts Association Crawl Partnering Program. See the contest rules here.
