Our History

Niagara Parks, a global leader in horticulture since 1885, first opened two small wooden structures in 1894 for the purpose of growing seasonal plants for Queen Victoria Park. The first floral conservatory soon followed in 1897.

The Floral Showhouse you see today opened in November 1946, with the north and south houses added in 1951 and in June 1980, the front reception and gift shop opened featuring a large glass-enclosed ceiling allowing our horticulturalists to grow large palms and other tropical trees.

Today, the Floral Showhouse boasts several beautiful exhibits throughout the year with collections of orchids, ferns and tropical plants.

North + Centre Houses

The North and Centre houses host several unique floral exhibits throughout the year. Each display connects our horticultural expertise with the wonder of flowers and plants. Look for custom details that create a bit of whimsy for our guests!

Since their inception, these spaces within the Floral Showhouse have showcased an annual spring and fall display. Additional annual displays often celebrate holidays or give our plant experts the chance to connect with the local community and our international visitors with stories about Niagara Parks, the region, our partners, Ontario and Canada.

As many as 20,000 plants are grown annually for the Floral Showhouse and its conservatory spaces.


South House

Inside the South House, you’ll discover a myriad of stunning tropical plants. Explore palms, succulents and even some commonly known house plants.

What makes this space so special are the incredible orchids throughout the house. A symbol of elegance and perfection, they showcase blooms in a range of colour and sizes.
