Historic Norfolk Garden Tour

April 28th 2016 10am -8pm

 

Bike the Gardens

Enjoy a steady bicycle ride through historic Norfolk neighborhoods while enjoying the beauty of gardens along the eclectic roadways and trails of the Chelsea District in West Ghent. Located a few minutes from the bustling downtown central business district, the West Ghent neighborhood and the adjacent Chelsea business district feature stately early 20th century homes, the Weyanoke Wildlife Sanctuary, restaurants, a bakery, a brewery and other locally-owned small businesses. Annexed in the late 1890s, West Ghent offers a mix of homes dating from the early 1920s to the present day. Homes are within an easy walking or driving distance of each other, or visitors could walk or cycle the recently completed Elizabeth River Trail that runs through the neighborhood. Special tour events include floral demonstrations, wildlife sanctuary guided tours, and a brewery tour–all included in the ticket price. We will also explore the Victorian and kit homes of Colonial Place with the optional extended tour that will take you across the Lafayette River and into neighborhoods like Talbot Park, Wards Corner and Lockhaven.
