Garden Walk 2022

Join us for the 5th annual NHA Garden Walk on Saturday, June 18th. The walking tour of our local gardens begins in the back garden of the Half-moon Inn with Registration beginning at 8:30 am. The walk will then visit approximately 9 private gardens and see many others along the way in both the Borough and 2 gardens nearby in the Township. The walking route is about 2.5 miles at a leisurely pace over 2-3 hours. The walk ends back at the Half Moon Inn and then there is a short drive by car to the 2 additional gardens in Newtown Township.

A $10 donation is requested and these funds go to the maintenance of the Boone Garden, owned by the Newtown Historic Association and located across Court Street from the Half-moon Inn. There’s a lot to see and appreciate in our small town! So, bring a friend, wear your walking shoes and plan to arrive from 8:30 AM until the start of the walk at 9:00 AM. No reservations are necessary. The Garden Walk is held rain or shine.
