The Whittier-Mapleton Garden Tour has established itself as Boulder’s premier garden tour, opening up to eight hand-selected and exceptional gardens in the historic Mapleton Hill neighborhood. Attracting more than 800 visitors, the Garden Tour is a must-do, interactive event in Boulder as well as Whittier Elementary school’s most successful fundraiser. 100 percent of the proceeds from the Garden Tour benefit Whittier International Elementary School, a public school that, at 135 years old, is the oldest school in Colorado that has been continuously operating in the same location.
