Garden Walk FAQs


Visit five or six creative private gardens and the spectacular Flower Show, held at the Monroe County History Center featuring floral displays created by Bloomington Garden Club members. 

Visitors are invited to stroll the gardens and the Flower Show at their leisure in any order on both days. Cameras are welcome.   


Transportation is required as you progress from garden to garden in whatever order you prefer.

Please note

To ensure the safety and well-being of all visitors, we ask that there be no smoking, no strollers, and no pets. We regret that access may be limited for wheelchairs. Bikes may be parked on the front sidewalk or at curbside.   


Garden Walk tickets provide garden addresses and a detailed map to help you find each garden location.

Tickets are $10 each, and one ticket is good for both Saturday and Sunday at all venues. Tickets are sold by Garden Club members from May until the Garden Walk.  Vendors will have tickets available for a month preceding the Garden Walk. See list of ticket vendors. 

On the days of the Garden Walk, tickets may be purchased at the History Center using a credit card.   


These companies help us defray the costs of our walk. Please be sure to let them know you appreciate their support of this community event.  See list of sponsors.
