Beautiful Gardens
Sep. 2020
Stopped in while on our visit to Annapolis Royal.
Very well maintained gardens are beautifully laid out and a great place to spend part of the day roaming around and enjoying the great variety of flowers and plants.
Although we were there late in the season there was still plenty of color left.
They also have a souvenir shop onsite.
Very nice

Tantalize Your Senses!
Jul. 2020
A visit to the Historic Gardens is peaceful and relaxing at any time of the year. The rose garden is incredible when it is in bloom and will fill your senses with colourful blooms and perfumed scents. Birds sing, butterflies flutter... it's totally inspiring. The Azalea's and Rhododendrons will amaze you with their beauty in the spring. The large pond is so restful and beautiful. There is just something worthwhile seeing every single time you visit. Don't miss the Wisteria walkway!

Must be a sea of Colour in the Summer
Sep. 2020
We were there mid September..A lot of the flowers & plants were ramping down for the Autumn..
Still there was still an abundance of colour, exotic plants , shrubs & trees all around..
It certainly would be spectacular in the summer..
So many little twists & turns..going from one garden to another..All different..

Great place to have a leasurely stroll
Sep. 2020
Visited on Sept. 9/20 and there were still plenty to see and lots of blooms. Nice balance of sunny and shaded areas. Staff very helpful with answering questions. Will definitely return at a different time of the year to see different plants in bloom.
