This year’s Annual Garden Tour and Party featured elegant outdoor entertainment areas in beautiful gardens of this historic neighborhood.
It was a self-guided walking tour of six private gardens on Irving Boulevard between Third Street & Wilshire Boulevard in Windsor Square including Getty House, the residence of The Mayor, Eric Garcetti. We were proud to honor Amy Elaine Wakeland, our First Lady.
Hundreds of people came from far and wide to enjoy strolling through the magnificent gardens, tasting wine and small bites in each of the gardens.
