The 18th annual Capen Garden Walk will be Saturday, July 13, 2019, 10:00 am-4:00 pm. This is a free self-guided tour of about 60 private gardens and carefully nurtured public spaces in the neighborhoods surrounding the University at Buffalo South campus. In addition, some private and public gardens will be open for Capen by Night from 8:00-10:00 pm.
The Capen Garden Walk is designed to encourage neighborhood beautification and collaboration as well as to build strong communities. It is named for Samuel P. Capen, the first full-time, salaried Chancellor at the University at Buffalo. The Samuel P. Capen Garden Walk began in 2002 with 24 gardens, in an effort to showcase the neighborhoods of the University District of Buffalo, Eggertsville and Amherst.
Maps for the July 13 walk will be available at the UB Anderson Gallery, 1 Martha Jackson Place, Buffalo (between Montrose & Englewood Avenues) until 4:00 pm and at UHAA-St. Andrew Sculpture Garden, 3107 Main Street, Buffalo, until 10:00 pm. Free parking at both locations.
