North Shore Garden Walk "Garden Fantasies"
Visit five special gardens in Highland Park
and Lake Forest that include inspirational designs filled with beautiful and rare plants. In Highland Park, visit a garden club member’s home overlooking Lake Michigan that was designed in 1926 by architect Robert E. Seyfarth and landscaped by Prairie style master Jens Jensen, a landscape architect’s colonial home with lush garden borders nestled against a New England-inspired fence and a ravine waterfall, and a 1905 Prairie style house highlighted by a large porch patio overlooking the front garden and a backyard with multiple seating areas designed with entertaining in mind. In Lake Forest, visit a Mediterranean style house and garden designed by Howard Van Doren Shaw in 1909 featuring a restoration
of a sunken garden by Rose Standish Nichols, and Craig Bergmann’s garden at a historic David Adler gate-house that includes formal borders, a shade garden, orchard, motor court and a new swimming pool garden.
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 on the day of the walk. They will be sold on the patio at the Deerpath Inn in Lake Forest. Net proceeds will go to fund scholarships at the College of Lake County, the Chicago Botanic Garden's Green Youth Farm in North Chicago, and other horticultural projects.
