Lee's Summit's Annual Garden Walk

Lee's Summit's Annual Garden Walk

By Carlee Edwards

It is time once again for the annual Garden Walk Lee’s Summit. The event, in its 3rd year, will be held this next Saturday, June 14th, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the Howard Neighborhood Historic District in Downtown Lee’s Summit.

Garden Walk Lee’s Summit takes locals and visitors alike though several, beautiful gardens ranging from creative and funky to classic and formal. Some gardens will have music playing and one house even plans to set up a painting workshop in the yard. Visitors will also get a chance to participate in scavenger hunt set up throughout the tour. Finding all seven items hidden within the tour will allow you to enter a drawing to win a prize.

The idea of Garden Walk came from a similar event that started in Buffalo, NY that helped to bring in tourists and rejuvenate the town.

“We thought it was a good idea,” one of the founders of Garden Walk, Dave Eames, explained. “We thought it would encourage people to get out and explore Lee’s Summit.”
Tours begin at any time during the open hours and tickets can be purchased prior to the event at any Great Southern Bank location in Lee’s Summit, or on the day of the event at the tour’s starting point: 601 S.E. Miller St. (Fossil Gardens) at the corner of 6th and Miller streets in Downtown Lee’s Summit. The cost is $5 per person. Children ages 12 and younger are free.

Garden Walk Lee’s Summit is sponsored by Great Southern Bank and all proceeds benefit Downtown Lee's Summit Main Street's efforts to revitalize and preserve Downtown Lee's Summit.
“A major purpose of Garden Walk is to help benefit downtown while giving us a chance to show off our gardens and neighborhood that we’re so proud of,” Eames said.
Visitors are encouraged to park in the city’s free public parking garage on Second and Green street. Visitors are also encouraged to take time and explore Downtown Lee’s Summit shops, restaurants and the Farmers Market before or after taking a GardenWalk Tour.

Garden Walk offers everyone a chance to meet new people and appreciate the gardens, architecture and historic homes that make Downtown Lee’s Summit so unique. Everyone is welcome to get outside, enjoy the summer weather, and explore the neighborhood!
