While the gardens are the premiere feature of the tour, over its 19 year existence the Old Louisville Hidden Treasures Garden Tour has added new elements for its guests’ enjoyment. The Hospitality Center in Haskins Hall, a part of the historic Conrad-Caldwell House Museum, offers complimentary refreshments and is the site of a silent auction of garden-oriented items. Vendors set-up in the shade of old trees offer plants and garden ornaments for sale.
Since 2003, Gayle Warren, owner of the DuPont Mansion B&B, has generously sponsored Art in the Garden where artists create and display their work and guests may stroll among them to chat if they like. For the third time, Art in the Garden will offer for sale a signed limited-edition poster of a painting, this year by Louisville artist Donna Chancellor.

Audubon Park Garden Tour
Sat., June 22, 10 AM – 4 PM
The Audubon Park Garden Club was founded in 1929 to promote the beauty of the surrounding area, including the easements and small parks, and to encourage gardening among its members. During the annual “Festival of the Dogwood” in April, the residents illuminate their yards and common areas.
In 2002, the Club began holding garden tours to show the more private side of Audubon Park. Gardens range from formal to intimate, shade to sun, large to small, but all reflect the personal gardening tastes of the owners. Since all the gardens on the Audubon Park Garden Tour are within Audubon Park, many patrons choose to walk the approximately two-mile route.
