A hundred years ago, it was cottage country. Today, it’s Toronto’s laid-back Beach neighbourhood, along the lake in the city’s east end.
This Sunday, June 26, 17 private gardens in this nature-loving area will be open on the Beach Garden Society’s annual garden tour. From small, intimate spaces to ravine-side surprises, you’ll see some of the best-kept green spaces in town.
This private garden tour of Toronto’s Beach community is always a must-see (here’s a peek at the show two years ago in 2009; in 2010, Beach gardens were the feature of Through the Garden Gate).
Tickets are only ten dollars, available at local merchants: East End Garden Centre, 1395 Queen St. E.; Beachwood Flower Shop, 1916 Queen St. E.; Pippin’s Tea Company, 2098 Queen St. E.; Pet Valu, 2210 Queen St. E.; and Cirone’s Fine Foods, 2312 Queen St. E. Also at Bill’s Garden Centre, 903 Pape; Centre 55, 97 Main St.; East of Eliza, 1960 Gerrard E., and Trinity Gallery, 926 Kingston.
