A recent tour of the Historic Gardens was well worth it. The meandering paths with many varieties of flowers, shrubs and native trees made it seem as if you were in another time and place. The gardens are laid out in themes with a fountain,...More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our walk through these gardens. It is a large property and there is a map to locate the sites. My favorite area was the Victorian garden.

With the Bay of Fundy right near, this is a MUST see stop! Do not miss it along your route north. We almost did and ended up spending 3 hours there!

We were staying nearby and were delighted to visit on a warm, sunny afternoon. The rhododendrons were in full bloom and the bees were having a great time!

As a gardener I loved meandering through the gardens. Use the brochure to help you check things out. There is a small fee as they are a not for profit but well worth it.
