Annual SPCA Garden Tour

2018 Garden Tour, Photo by Ralph Blessing

Please join us each year for the SPCA Garden Tour. This self-guided walking tour showcases the beautiful landscapes within Shepherd Park, Colonial Village, and North Portal Estates. Unique gardens of all sizes and styles will be on display for everyone’s enjoyment and inspiration, plus we will have some special attractions, as well as activities for kids.

Tickets are still only $15 per person for general admission and $7 for SPCA members. Admission is free for children under twelve. Proceeds from the tour go directly to support SPCA's beautification projects throughout the neighborhood. Tickets may be purchased in advance or on the day of the tour. On the day of the tour, the ticket kiosk will open at 1:30 pm in front of Shepherd Elementary School (14th Street & Kalmia Road NW). Tour brochures with maps and directions will be provided there.

If you need more information or would like to volunteer, contact tour coordinators:
