It’s time to get out and explore our country’s beautiful gardens and enjoy everything they offer (please respect COVID-19 directives)

Whether it’s your toddler marveling at the silky feel of a blossom, a secluded bench on which lovers gaze into each other’s eyes or an astounding collection of rare plants – from coast to coast Canada’s gardens and garden experiences can provide you with an oasis of green in which to spend a few leisurely hours.

Canada’s Garden Route is not a ‘route’ per se, instead, it is a comprehensive listing of Canadian gardens and garden experiences. If you’re planning to stop in and visit some of the finest examples of ornamental horticulture the country has to offer – this is the website that will help you find the perfect garden experience you’re looking for.

You can search for gardens by name, category, or gardens near you. Just click on the link that best suits your purposes.

Canada’s garden experiences look forward to welcoming all visitors, whether you come from across town or from anywhere in the country.

Canada’s Garden Road Trips

We have also started working with various gardens to create Canada’s Garden Road Trips. These include garden destinations, as well as local relevant attractions, shops and restaurants, so you can enjoy a day or weekend trip. Stay tuned as we’ll be adding more over the summer.
