Walk on the Hill and Green Expo

The Town of Vienna will put on its 43rd stroll through gardens throughout the Windover Heights Historic District when it hosts Walk on the Hill Sunday, April 30. The yards and gardens of approximately 50 homes in the Town’s northwest historic district will be open to visitors from 2-5 p.m.

In addition to self-guided tours, musical performances, and other activities, the event will include, for the second time and by popular demand, the Community Enhancement Commission’s (CEC) Green Expo. 

“The Walk makes a perfect atmosphere for the Expo,” says CEC Chair Susan Stillman. “Now the Expo has a living backdrop for its exhibits and initiatives.”

All activities are free and open to the public. Parking is available at Green Hedges School, 415 Windover Avenue. Many roads in the historic district will be closed to vehicular traffic beginning at 2 p.m. A map of the Walk and its activities can be found at viennava.gov/walkingmap.

Some Walk on the Hill activities have a rain date (Sunday, May 7).  For "day of" Walk on the Hill weather-related information, if necessary, visit viennava.gov or call Vienna parks and recreation at 703-255-6360 or Historic Vienna, Inc. at 703-938-5187.
"As long as we have weather as perfect as last year, the event pretty much happens on its own," says Councilmember Carey Sienicki, a Windover Heights resident who is again organizing the event with Historic Vienna, Inc. "Residents get to enjoy – and share – the beautiful scenes of their gardens as a backdrop to the homes and neighborhood, which pairs so well with the Green Expo."
