A Sanctuary

Take a walk amongst the luscious trees, inhale the oxygen, sit a while, relax, meditate. Especially divine when the Lemon Tree blossoms - their scent in intoxicating.

Nice to see some vegetation in the dead of winter in athunder Bay. The building is in dire need of some loving care but inside there are lemon trees, orange trees and birds of paradise blooming. It either needs a longer walking path and/or a coffee Shop!

Packed a picnic on a cold January day and enjoyed the flowers and plants... limes, lemons even figs! Nice ambiance, good company, lovely couple of hours. I was surprised at how many people popped in.

My family brought me here this past week on my yearly visit to Thunder Bay. I loved every second of this conservatory. With the weather being so awful it was calming and refreshing to view such beauty! I almost forgot I was inside. Staff was very friendly- highly recommend!

the plants in bloom are always changing and it's always a new place to visit. Great to sit with your lunch in a quiet place or just meditate.

Good variety of trees, shrubs, flowers. Outside jungle like feel with rock and amethyst quartz walls, water, overhanging trees. :-) :-)

The midwinter deep freeze is my favourite time to visit this tropical paradise. Warm, humid air, beautiful flowers and foliage. And all for a voluntary donation. Sure beats the cost of airfare!

A wonderfully relaxing place to visit at any time, but especially in the winter. Wonderful waterfall, plants and flowers.
