Why Attend Union Street's Garden Walk?

Our garden walk shares one thing with other garden walks - beautiful gardens in the south suburbs. So why attend our garden walk? We have different artists working in each garden. Not only will you get to see these artists working on their pieces inspired by each garden, you can come visit the gallery a few months later to see the completed works. 


What is the Garden Walk?

Union Street Gallery's garden walk usually happens in the beginning of July. The walk features a wide variety of gardens in the south suburbs. We have been fortunate enough to have gardens from Chicago Heights, South Chicago Heights, Park Forest, Homewood, Flossmoor, Frankfort, Crete, Monee, and Dyer, In. The gardens are curated by artist, Marikay Peter Witlock.  

Stay Tuned for This Year's Gardens

Enjoy Artful Gardens in the Chicago Heights, Homewood, and Flossmoor. Stroll the grounds, chat with the gardeners, and visit with working artists in every garden.

Garden #1
Old World Gem, Chicago Heights

This secret garden in Old Chicago Heights welcomes visitors with front porch seasonal displays. Beyond the garden gate enjoy the wonder of European intensive gardening where every inch of space is growing and lush. Apple and cherry trees, grapevines, vegetables and herbs grow in raised gardens, vertical gardens, and boxwood frames.


Garden #3
Perennial Delights Par for the Course, Flossmoor

Blending indoor and outdoor living space, this home and garden carries good design throughout. Deck, patio, and pergola offer gracious seating and dining areas while planting islands of trees, shrubs, perennials and grasses frame a stunning golf course view. A fire ring near fern glade and woods welcomes an evening under the stars.


Garden #5 Wildlife Hospitality & Hosta, Homewood

A touch of France graces this front garden of seasonal decor and garden gates. Birds, butterflies, and visiting wildlife enjoy the side yard, while chickens, dogs, decking and zinnias create a central garden of spectacular summer days. Beyond are shaded pathways through specialty hosta, heuchera, dogwood, and garden ornaments.

Garden #2
Senpai's Bonsai Garden, Chicago Heights

Bonsai, (pronounced "bone-sigh") meaning tree in a pot, began in China more than three thousand years ago. Bonsai paints a beauty of shadows-the grandeur of heaven and earth and creation. Experience the melding of art and horticulture as you peruse over one hundred bonsai and pre-bonsai of various species, shapes and sizes.


Garden #4
Vintage Jewels, Homewood

Framed by a garden of delightful details, this charming Cottage-style Bungalow home features boxwood hedges, rose gardens, scented trees and shrubs, and an amazing old growth Clematis.


Garden #6 Dooryard Abundance, Homewood

Intensive gardening is key in this Dooryard Garden of flowering shrubs, roses, perennials, ivy and evergreens. Within this garden is an island of lawn and a welcoming garden bench hiding just feet from the street. Do sit and enjoy! On-site composting, planting for rabbits, and wise watering from rain barrel & drip system make this garden work.
