SAVE THE DATE: Holiday Historic Home Tour Returns 12/4/16

The Flamingo Park Holiday Historic Home Tour returns on Sunday, December 4, 2016, 5-8 p.m. Check back very soon for more details about this year's exciting event! 

Flamingo Park to Host Botanically Blissful Afternoon Garden Tour on April 3, Amid Downtown Neighborhood’s Historic Homes

Framed by picturesque streets lined with Mahogany, Coconut Palm, Southern Oak and Royal Poinciana trees, the Flamingo Park Historic District invites the community to come wander through 10 verdant gardens and indulge the senses with live music and delicious cuisine at the neighborhood’s biennial Historic Home Garden Tour, from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 3, 2016.

Gardens on the tour surround Flamingo Park’s distinctive historic homes, most built in the 1920s in the Spanish and Mediterranean Revival architectural styles. Gardens range widely in style from formal and cottage gardens populated by lush tropical trees and plants, to native Florida landscapes, elaborate vegetable and herb gardens, and outdoor living spaces showcasing unique pools and inviting patios.

SPECIAL TOUR FEATURES

Each home on the tour is more of a destination on a 10-stop roving garden party, with live music performed by an impressive lineup of local musicians from many musical genres, and complimentary food and drink provided by some of West Palm Beach’s finest restaurants, including Sushi Jo, Serenity Garden Tea House, and the highly acclaimed new Italian bistro Grato.

As a special bonus for Garden Tour participants, the new multi-disciplinary art gallery and restaurant EMKO will open their lush garden patio as a “last stop” on the tour, serving tour guests coffee and dessert from 3 to 5 p.m.

Horticultural experts will be on hand at several homes to provide gardening advice and answer any questions visitors may have. For guests seeking an expert-led guided tour experience, this year’s Garden Tour will offer two such tours during the event. Larry Grosser, a retired environmental scientist and certified Master Gardner, will lead visitors on a tour exploring the many aspects of tropical fruit trees and produce gardening. Jeff Nurge, also a Master Gardener, will lead a tour focused on butterfly gardening and Florida native planting. Nurge is owner and founder of sustainable landscape consulting company Florida Native Gardening, as well as co-owner of Native Choice Nursery. These expert-led tours are both roughly one hour in length and available to interested Garden Tour guests for no additional charge. Due to limited space, participation is on a first-come, first-served basis.

WHERE TO START

The starting point for the tour is 720 Ardmore Road [view map], where tour goers can pick up tickets purchased online, along with their tour guide booklet. This is also the starting location for the expert-led guided tours. Tickets can also be purchased here on tour day for $40 with cash, personal checks or major credit card. Children are welcomed and child tickets (age 5-17) are $15 and must be purchased on tour day at the check-in tent. Since this event serves alcohol, guests age 21 and up will be issued a wristband. 

For your convenience, the check-in tent will open at 12:30 p.m., but all gardens will open promptly at 1.

PARKING & GETTING AROUND

Parking is free and readily available throughout the Flamingo Park neighborhood. Visitors who wish to park close to the check-in tent at 720 Ardmore Road are advised to park on adjacent Lake Avenue. Parking here is limited, so ample parking is also available in a large parking lot located on Florida Ave. at Westwood Rd. CLICK HERE FOR MAP It is only a 5-minute walk from this lot to the check-in tent at 720 Ardmore.

The tour route is easily and comfortably walkable. A free open-air electric mini-bus will also be available for guests wishing to ride between locations on the tour. The route will be provided in the tour booklet distributed to all guests at the check-in tent. 

WHERE TO BUY TICKETS

Tickets for the 2016 Flamingo Park Historic Home Garden Tour include admission to all 10 neighborhood gardens (plus EMKO visit from 3-5 p.m.), optional participation in one or both of the expert-led walking tours, and all-you-care-to-enjoy food and drink.
