Welcome to Canada’s Garden Route

Aaah, spring! There’s hardly anything more exciting to winter-weary Canadians than the thrill of the seeing the first crocus poking its head up through the melting snow, buds swelling on the trees and popping open to greet the sun or the magnificence of a magnolia in full bloom.

It’s time to get outside to enjoy the re-awakening of Mother Nature in all her glory.

It’s also never too early to think about summer holidays. If you love visiting gardens, you’re in great company with fellow enthusiasts all over the world, and you’re on the perfect site to find not-to-be-missed gardens, garden focused communities and garden experiences that you’ll want to visit as you travel across this magnificent country.

Canada’s Garden Route is not a ‘route’ per se, instead, it is the most comprehensive listing of Canadian gardens and garden experiences. If you’re planning to stop in and visit some of the finest examples of 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, province or city. 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 around the world.
