Join the millions of people who visit gardens every years
June 17, Canada’s National Garden Day, is the official launch of the 2016 Canada’s Garden Route season. Across the country, no matter whether the gardens are big or small, they are at the peak of their late spring, early summer perfection. It truly is time to stop and smell the roses . . . and the sweet peas and the lavender, rosemary, sage and thyme too.
Canada’s Garden Route is the most comprehensive listing of Canadian gardens and garden experiences. While you’re travelling around the country this summer and want to adjust your ‘route’ 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, province or city. Just click on the link that best suits your purposes.
June 17 is also the start of Garden Days 2016. For three days – June 17, 18, 19 – activities are being organized from coast to coast to celebrate the values and importance of the country’s public and private gardens; the vital role that gardens and gardening play in our communities and our lives; the promotion of environmental stewardship; and the sheer enjoyment of having fun outside, in the open, surrounded by the finest that nature has to offer.

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