East Side Garden Walk

Sat, Jul 23rd - Sun, Jul 24th
10:00 am - 3:00 pm


The East Side Garden Walk (ESGW), begun in 2018, encourages visitors and neighbors to walk, drive, or bike Buffalo’s East Side, learning about the resilience of this community. Visitors meet its gracious gardeners, experience its historic neighborhoods and wide-ranging architecture.

The 60+ featured gardens are an eclectic mix of private homes, community gardens – even some urban farms – with participating gardeners ranging from school children helping in outdoor classrooms gardens to senior citizens, and everyone between. The free, self-guided walk encourages community revitalization and the beautification of the East Side one neighbor at a time. Equally important are the conversations among gardeners and visitors that bridge notions of differences.

More than a garden tour, the ESGW is a way for residents to take control of the narrative for its community. They share gardens, stories, and a spirit of perseverance with those from within and outside its neighborhood – countering the negative stigma often portrayed on the news – by creating positive stories. Love of gardening and community creates connections between gardeners, neighbors, and visitors. The ESGW transforms its neighborhoods by providing a spotlight for residents to “show out” and by encouraging everyone to be the change, because this community matters.

The East Side Garden Walk, through its partnerships, is making a difference in neighborhoods by building on the already strong sense of community. It is also changing the perception of Buffalo’s East Side, helping to enhance community pride, recognition, and investment.

Come explore Buffalo’s East Side neighborhoods – Masten Park, Willert Park, Emslie, Lovejoy, Emerson, Schiller Park, Grider, Cold Springs, the Fruit Belt, Larkin, Hamlin Park, Kensington, Leroy, Lasalle and many more. An app will be available in early July wherever you buy your apps to guide you!
