About this event

Center Square and Hudson/Park Neighborhood Associations have joined together for over 40 years to present one of the most enduring events of the summer – tours that give a unique glimpse into our city’s historic urban neighborhoods and gardens. The summer tour is a highly anticipated annual event for history, garden and architecture lovers alike.

What was once a tour of private homes and gardens, because of the pandemic, in 2021 turned into a new event: The Stupendous Stoop Stroll. This day-long event will be held on Saturday, June 24, 2023.

This year’s Stoop Stroll will have a gilded glow. In the summer of 2022 Heyday Productions, LLC chose Center Square and the surrounding neighborhoods to film portions of Season Two of The Gilded Age for HBO. We will commemorate this filming with unique walking tours.

This year’s event will include:

  • A Stoop Stroll - residents will decorate their stoops and strollers will be able to view upwards of 100 uniquely decorated stoops featuring not only flowers, but displaying many different creative themes which grow out of the residents’ imagination. No two stoops are alike.
  • A Gilded Age walking tour - guides will present the history of the houses used by The Gilded Age production and will relay stories about the filming of the show. Pictures of the actors in costume and the transformation of the facades will be on display.
  • A Summer Market of vendors and crafts persons will be in our neighborhood park (Hudson-Jay Park) throughout the day, rounding out the celebration.
