Established in 1936, the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens presents visitors with 99 acres (40 hectares) of beautifully maintained gardens that include perennials, rhododendrons, azaleas, a formal parterre garden, herb and vegetable plantings, and our world-famous rose garden featuring over 2,400 roses. This section of the parkland is also the home to the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture, an institution that provides unique practical training to horticulture students on the grounds of the Botanical Gardens.
More than meets the eye
“As stewards of the natural heritage of the Niagara River Corridor, Niagara Parks is continually taking steps to reduce our collective impact on the environment, such as with our new refillable water bottle stations at the nearby Butterfly Conservatory and Butterfly Café. This pilot project seeks to reduce the environmental impact caused by plastic waste resulting from discarded water bottles.
So please, join us as we work to preserve our environment. Enjoy free, refreshing Ontario drinking water – among some of the cleanest in the world – and have a great day exploring an environmentally friendly Niagara Parks that you have helped preserve.
