Thank you for your support of the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra
We're thrilled to have you join us for a weekend of fun on Saturday, June 11 and/or Sunday, June 12 from 10am-2pm!
Please keep in mind that the gardens are at private residences, and therefore will not have restrooms available for public usage. Be sure to make arrangements for potty breaks at many of the wonderful cafes, coffee shops, and restaurants along the tour route.
Usage of a navigational system such as Google Maps, Apple Maps, or MapQuest is recommended. Please observe traffic laws, and plan your tour of the gardens accordingly.
Street parking is required at each residence. Please refrain from parking in the driveways of private residences to allow homeowners to enter/exit as they need.
Most gardens are handicap accessible. Please review the garden notes for each property to ascertain any that are not.
