What's Blooming at the Park
Many early perennials are blooming as well as our ornamental flowering crabapples in Crabapple Lane. The crabapples are amazing this year and we can see that our lilacs are just beginning to bloom. With the season underway there will be new pockets of bloom everywhere in the Park.
In addition to our online sales of plants (see below), we will be 'open' every Saturday and Sunday from Noon to 4 pm for plant sales in front of our patio gates.
Thank you to everyone who supported the Botanic Park by purchasing roses online during COVID-19. A selection of perennials is now available. Our Online Shop is open now with payments accepted by PayPal, Visa, MasterCard and Amex. After making a purchase be sure to book an appointment for curb side pickup of your plants.
In respect of current COVID-19 provincial regulations and the safety of our volunteers, we ask that you practice social distancing when visiting the Park to pick up your plants.
Due to a directive from the City of St. Albert, we are not permitted to allow any visitors into our fenced areas at the present time. This includes our buildings, greenhouses and washrooms.
Park Facilities are Currently Closed
Due to the uncertain nature of the COVID-19 situation, our Gift Shop, Patio, John Beedle Volunteer Centre and Washrooms are closed until further notice. The Park gardens are always open for those who may want to walk through although we ask that you follow public health guidelines of social distancing.
The Park office is currently closed and will not open on a full time schedule until health concerns regarding COVID-19 are removed. To book a wedding or photography session in the garden, rental in the John Beedle Centre or for information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers are out working in their areas and practicing social distancing according to Alberta public health recommendations. Please respect their space as they might not always be aware that a visitor is near them.
With some of our volunteers isolating at home, we are short of help this spring. For information on volunteering at the Botanic Park, please visit Volunteer Opportunities
