Driving through the Scarborough Bluffs, you couldn’t be blamed if you were curious to experience the beautiful décor, unique designs and spectacular views hidden behind each front entrance you pass. Your chance to satisfy that curiosity is at hand with the return of the Gates Open Home & Garden Tour on Saturday, June 17.
The fifth annual tour takes place rain or shine from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and ticket holders have the opportunity to take in spectacular views of Lake Ontario and see firsthand the amazing architecture and changes owners have made to their homes. There are nine exquisite properties lined up for this year’s event and tour organizers, as always, are very proud of the locations they have made available for participants to enjoy.
‟I am so impressed by the variety of homes and special features and design elements that are included in this year’s tour,” says Gord Moore, Chair of the Gates Open Home and Garden Tour committee. “People are going to come away impressed and full of ideas for their own homes when they finish the tour. In fact, they won’t want to leave in some cases!”
Tickets are just $30 for the tour, with a program provided via mail prior to the event that is both a guide to all of the homes, as well as your passport to enter and enjoy each stop. Proceeds of the event go to help provide patient care at Scarborough and Rouge Hospital with a specific target to support future improvements to emergency care.
“Everyone involved in the tour enjoys being a part of the event, but most of all, we’re excited for the hospital and how we can play a part in supporting the best health care for the people of the community,” Moore adds. “We are all proud of the care provided at Scarborough and Rouge Hospital.”
