3. If I have a beautiful program brochure, with map link and property descriptions, where do I start walk?
     
At any of the Five Garden locations! A helpful hint: you might start at the Mundelein garden and moving into town, as the online ticket pickup patrons will most likely begin in town.

4. Do we walk or drive between garden sites?
     Our Gardens are located throughout Libertyville so patrons will drive from site to site. A QR code linked to a google map is available on the printed ticket. All online ticket patrons pick up their tickets at 740 Oak Spring Lane.

5. Do I have to start the walk at 10 a.m.?
     Ticket holders can begin anytime between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. - Keep in mind, the walk can take a couple hours or more to complete, especially if you spend time chatting with owners.

6. Can I pick up my online tickets before Saturday, June 24?
     Online tickets can be picked up on Farmer's Market Thursdays. For this year's walk, that opportunity is closed after Thursday, June 26. Online ticket pickup is ON THE DAY OF THE WALK, a740 Oak Spring Lane

7. Can I bring my child?
​This event is best suited to children over the age of 12. Children 12 and over must have ticket. There are safety hazards (pools, stones, ponds) and children often do not understand that they should not walk in flower beds or pull/pick the flowers our homeowners generously allow patrons to view. No strollers or wagons. Respecting our gardeners, their time and effort and gift of sharing their properties with us (these are NOT club membrs!) is of the utmost importance. That said,  younger children can accompany parents but MUST be carried or held by the hand AT ALL TIMES.  Your understanding and courteousness in this matter is appreciated.
