The Historical Society of Forest Park hosted its third annual garden walk on July 11, the first where masks were worn and social distancing maintained. But despite COVID-necessitated rules, the event sold out and participants enjoyed a day strolling through Forest Park gardens.

Best in Show, an award given to the garden receiving most votes from participants, went to Tom O’Connel and Cameron Wilson for their backyard mural garden at 843 Circle Ave.

At 1054 Thomas, visitors had a chance to see the Worthington Home Veggie Garden and watch a cooking demo from local chef Ashley Simone of Zesty Catering.

Ralph and Andrea DiFebo gave tours of their outdoor living space, which includes a pizza oven and three-season screen house.

Pam and Drew Fontana opened their yard for people to visit their sculpture garden, featuring pieces collected over the years.

Kathy Caldwell’s cottage garden at 821 Ferdinand St. is home to fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs.

And the Taylor Home Small Space Garden featured flowers and historical relics the owners found in the 116-year-old home they rehabbed.
