A Magical Spring Stroll …
They don’t last long, but while in bloom, the Magnolia Allée located outside of the Floral Showhouse, is transformed into one of the most beautiful sites in Queen Victoria Park!
Where is Magnolia Allée?
You will discover our stunning Magnolia Allée just outside the Floral Showhouse, along the Niagara River Parkway. A popular spot for tourists to capture early signs of spring, the allée features more than 50 Saucer Magnolias. The magnolia is best known for its flowers. The picture-perfect, tulip-shaped blossoms can be seen in hues of pink and white.
When do they bloom?
The show-stopping beauty of our Magnolia Allée can be admired in early spring. The flowers will open before the foliage and when the trees are in bloom, they produce a fragrant scent.
How long do the blooms last?
The Magnolia trees you find in the allée are about 25 years old. Their bloom time is dependent on the weather. The petals are delicate and can be easily damaged by inclement weather, such as heavy rain, snow, or high winds. The stunning blooms typically last about two weeks.
Year of the Garden
Niagara Parks is celebrating the Year of the Garden. The Canadian Garden Council developed the initiative to inspire and inform Canadians about the many health, economic and environmental benefits that gardens and gardening provide. As part of our environmental and cultural stewardship program, our horticulture experts spend hours cultivating the natural spaces across our 56-kilometre parkland for visitors to enjoy.
