Each year the South End Garden Tour features gardens in a different section of the country’s largest district of surviving row houses and this year’s tour is centered on gardens and green spaces in and around the area bordered by Tremont Street and the Southwest Corridor Park between Dartmouth Street and Massachusetts Avenue. The self-guided tour features a mix of public and private spaces including private back yards, front gardens, community gardens, and neighborhood pocket parks.  For more details about the tour, volunteering, or supporting the event with the purchase of a advertisement in the tour booklet visit For more details on Trustees’ gardens, please visit

These gardens provide critical green space, a place for neighbors to come together in community, and an opportunity to grow and share fresh healthy food.
