LFP Garden Tour & Market
Saturday June 17, 2023
The annual Secret Gardens of Lake Forest Park Garden Tour features five or six beautiful, private gardens in the City of Lake Forest Park. Once a year, for one day only, these unique and often spectacular local gardens are opened to the public as part of this tour.
Purchase tickets in advance at local garden centers or online and exchange the advance ticket for a map of the six gardens on the date of the event in the lower level of Lake Forest Park Town Center. Same day tickets can be purchased in person there as well.
The Garden Market, formerly known as the “Plant Sale,” features a dazzling array of plants for every garden and so much more! Shop for plants, flowers, and a beautiful assortment of garden art and creative endeavors that will bring personality and charm to your outdoor spaces (and maybe even your indoor ones as well).
The Garden Market is a free event, open from 9 AM to 3 PM on the lower level of the Lake Forest Park Town Center.
Thanks to everyone who came out on Earth Day for a fun trash pick-up in our parks.
The Green Fair is back! Come visit us on Saturday April 29, 10am-2pm at the Town Center.
Community raises concerns about ST3 bus lanes coming to LFP
Posted on by kej22
We support Sound Transit’s Bus Rapid Transit project that is coming to Lake Forest Park.
An updated public transit system is a vital part of regional actions to fight climate change. In our area, a majority of voters supported the concept of Sound Transit 3 when it was proposed in 2016.
However, as the project has progressed and new designs were unveiled for the Lake Forest Park segment of the SR522 Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), concern has grown that it will have undue impacts on the environment and quality of life here.
LFP Citizens have long shown dedication to the protection of our urban forest, streams, and lake shore; this strong environmental ethic is at the core of what makes our small town special.

Happy New Year from all of us at the Stewardship Foundation!
Thank you to all who joined us Wednesday November 16th 7-9pm for our Annual Meeting at the beautiful Red Sky Gallery featuring special guest speaker David B Williams.
We enjoyed wine & refreshments from Vulpine Tap Room, while acting President Kim Josund shared the Foundation’s accomplishments and priorities during the Annual Report. Current and prospective members of the Board were introduced and Board elections held — we are all volunteers and your neighbors! WELCOME to three new Board Members: Amanda Royal, Jeff Snedden and Vicki Scuri.
Reminder that we want to hear from you about local environmental issues and ideas.
After the brief business meeting, we listened to author and naturalist, David B. Williams about his award-winning new book, Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound is a deep exploration of the stories of this beautiful waterway. He is also the author of Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography, as well as Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City. Williams is a Curatorial Associate at the Burke Museum and writes a free weekly newsletter, the
Street Smart Naturalist.
