Take a Walk in the Park
A changing scene of colour is evident throughout the Park as annuals and perennials bloom. In the west Park, daylilies are putting on a wonderful show and lilies will soon be over. For dahlia lovers, the annual display near the patio has begun! Don't forget to visit the Heritage Garden (just past the Cottage Garden) as it is now complete.
Please note that our last portion of our paved mobility path has been completed and access from the gazebo to the sidewalk across from Woodlands Road will be much easier for everyone with a stroller, walker or wheelchair. There is construction in the west Park as our volunteers are working on our new Habitat Garden.
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
