A great place to visit. Parking and cafe on the premises. Beautiful walks in this fabulous Garden, flowers were in bloom even though it was an exceptionally hot and humid day. A must for a garden and flower lover! Parking is available on the premises.

This is a wonderful and restful experience. Various floral plantings are displayed in sections of themed gardens, and there is also an opportunity to walk the paths to view the remnants of some Acadian dykes and an authentic replica of an Acadian thatched-roof home.

Almost sub-tropical in early August - amazing how well things are growing. Loved it and interesting historical 'dyke walk'.
