We took our friends from Hamilton to visit the gardens at night when the Christmas lights were up. They were absolutely beautiful and the kids had a great time exploring the grounds and seeing all of the lights. There wasn't a whole lot of parking but it was also quite busy. Will be back this Christmas for sure.

Beautiful little park, very well maintained, connected to the trails. It's nice to walk there any time of the year. There is a cute but pricey Tea cafe inside the park.

What a fantastic setting for afternoon tea. The surroundings are delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and the spice was very good.we also took the opportunity to view some of the paintings on display. I would recommend having afternoon tea here it reminisce of how tea was taken years ago.

This lovely Art Gallery on a dead industriaist's property is a matter of much warranted pride in Brantford. The place is a lovely venue for strolling, and when there are shows up, the gallery is delightful, too. Nice old mansion worth the viewing, as well.
