Garden Walk 2022

Thursday, July 14, 2022 from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m.

The City of Gillett Tourism and Marketing Commission is hosting the 1st Annual Garden Walk! This is an opportunity for people to tour gardens of our neighbors and friends – while learning how to incorporate their own ideas to their landscape. We have a plethora of residents who take great pride in their landscape. Gardens of all sorts are planned to be showcased: shade gardens, raised-bed gardens, seasonal gardens, hardscapes, waterfall features, and even those with small spaces! (Rain date is scheduled for Friday, July 15.)

Passes are $15 per person and are available for purchase at Gillett City Hall or Gillett Public Library. Maps will be provided when pass is purchased.
