Five houses and a few landmarks in the North Side's Observatory Hill neighborhood will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. June 2 for "The Park in Our Backyard" tour.

With help from Molly's Trolleys, Observatory Hill Inc. is trying to re-create the feeling of a trolley ride to Riverview Park. Tickets are $12 if ordered by May 29, $15 the day of the tour. Refreshments will be served in the park's Chapel Shelter, which will have a photo display and slide presentation about development of the area and the park. Founded in 1894, the park once included a zoo, nature center, Watson's Cabin and a Merry-Go-Round. The tour is sponsored by First Niagara.

Tickets: 412-736-2489 or email OHIhousetour@comcast.net. Information: www.observatoryhill.net.
