The annual Minerva Park Garden Tour, which attracts more than 100 people from around central Ohio each year, will highlight the diversity of the village's gardens.

This year's tour will be from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday and is free of charge.

The tour will feature 11 gardens, said Bob Gale, president of the Minerva Park Community Association, with several varieties of gardens represented.

"We usually just have flower gardens," Gale said. "We have at least two vegetable gardens and some going green."

This year's tour also will feature homes with gardens on the Minerva Park Golf Course, the village's lake and the ravine. Also unusual this year is the inclusion of a condominium's garden, Gale said.

"People are amazed at the variety of the gardens and the topography here," Gale said of why Minerva Park's Garden Tour continues to be popular after more than 15 years. "They don't really realize how beautiful the village is until they come and see it."
