The 2023 Mission Hills Garden Walk continues to be a much-loved gardening tradition with tickets almost sold out.  Celebrating the 25th annual garden walk, this year’s variety of gardens will be sure to offer ideas for anyone thinking of making changes in their own gardens or to just wishing to stroll through and enjoy the beauty of each one.  The walk will include a few spectacular gardens from past years in addition to wonderful gardens not yet seen.  One of the community’s favorite gardens has been renovated, and its owners promise lots of surprises.  The Garden Walk will again be held on the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend, May 13from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets should be purchased in advance ($35) at www.missionhillsgardenclub.org.  There is no guarantee tickets will be available the day of the walk.

This year’s Garden Walk will again include a scavenger hunt with a prize for all youth finding the treasures in the gardens.  Admission is free for children 10 and under, however strollers are not allowed in the gardens.

To assure safety again this year, participants will select a time slot for starting the walk, with a limited number of individuals in any one garden at a time.  The Garden Walk is designed to be approximately a two-mile route through Mission Hills, starting at the Mission Hills Nursery at 1525 Fort Stockton, where participants will pick up their map and wrist band at their selected

time.  Free Trolly service will be available to take participants from one end of the route to the other for those who may not want to walk the entire way. 

The Mission Hills Garden Club, established in 1997, is a non-profit, community service organization dedicated to educating, engage, beautify, and give back.  Proceeds from the annual Garden Walk support community improvement projects.  Recently the Garden Club has installed a fence along the golf course on Juan Street, replaced the benches at the Pioneer Park tennis courts, and is repainting the mural along Goldfinch south of Sutter Street.  Past community enhancement projects have included supporting the Gecko Garden at Grant Elementary School, restoration of Allen Canyon, plantings at Pioneer Park and Presidio Park, as well as scholarships to students studying agriculture and related fields.
