They will also see an award winning garden, a landscaped garden with statutory, and a flower herb box garden. The self-guided tour will feature a variety of homes with varying architectural styles and designs.

Visitors will also get a chance to see the City Green Farm near the White House. At the park the Paterson Chapter of the Blue Knights International Enforcement Motorcycle Club will display their motorcycles.
