If you like beautiful gardens and a peaceful location, this is it! The staff is wonderful and the care with which these gardens are maintained is clearly evident. All specimens are identified by name and there is historic interpretations as well. Highly recommended!

This place must be gorgeous in the summer, but in late May it is somewhat muted. The pathways are well marked and virtually every plant is identified. Lots of spring colour with many plants ready to blossom. Some plots are especially interesting with many different...More

This is one of my favourite places in Nova Scotia, and my family visits every year. We are particularly fond of the rose garden; the rhododendron and azalea collection is also impressive. The Acadian house and the dykewalk are favourites of my husband and son,...More

after such a cold spring it was a pleasure the tulips, the magnolias, and the lungworts showing their best colors. The remaining trees and flowers provided such a quiet ambiance that it invited you to stay and linger around for a few more moments

Lovely place to stroll and look around. Romantic setting for couples. Lots to see if your interest is in gardening. Not the best spot for children to run around, as you don't want to disturb and any of the flower beds.

The day we visited was a bit damp and misty but the beauty of the gardens shone through. Divided up into individually themed gardens, all well-tended and full of interesting plants. There was a reconstructed indigenous house amongst the gardens which was small but well...More

For someone who can barely identify the two basic varieties of 'tree', let alone flower or plant. This place was absolutely fascinating. The grounds are immaculate. What surprises, however, is the context that the signage puts the various gardens in. It is actually quite interesting;...More

Thank you for your kind comments. Prom night is a tradition that we very much enjoy - one of our give-backs to the community. It is wonderful to see the students and their families make use of the Gardens for celebrations such as this.
