Spring is here!
The Cottage Garden and new Heritage Garden are in bloom with more to come as the season progresses with their colourful ever changing display. Peonies in the west Park have started to bloom and you would not want to miss the show they put on.
Please note that we are under construction as we build a new paved path from the Cottage Garden to the gate as we head west. We ask that you be careful and observe the taped off areas. If volunteers are working you will still be able to visit the Heritage Garden as well as the west Park by heading out and walking along the trail for a bit.
To keep the Botanic Park beautiful during the 2017 growing season, our volunteers put in 13,335 hours! We are always looking for some extra hands to help maintain the Park - for information on volunteering at the Botanic Park, please visit Volunteer Opportunities
May 5, 2018 - September 3, 2018
Gift Shop and Patio are open for the season
Please stop by and see our new items and don't forget the perennials for sale on the patio! We have some gorgeous iris (bearded and Siberian) right now as well as an assortment of interesting plants that bees and butterflies love.

Canada Day Strawberry Tea
Come celebrate our nation's birthday with us! Cake, strawberries and ice cream will be served along with coffee, tea or lemonade by our volunteers. Enjoy the flowers and butterflies while your children participate in the annual scavenger hunt with a reward for every participant. Make a donation to St. Albert Botanic Park and help support the volunteers maintain and develop the gardens. Did you know that for a donation of $20.00 or more you can receive a tax receipt?
If this is your first visit to the Botanic Park, please stop by the Gift Shop and pick up a Walking Guide brochure.
