You can bike, walk, take the bus or drive to this wonderful little oasis just west of Westboro. The volunteers who maintain the garden are always willing to share tips and ideas with you. And any time of day is lovely for a visit. Little kids also enjoy figuring out all the plants.

A definite must-see! One of the few remaining examples of a 19th century walled garden in Canada. Serene, relaxing and absolutely breathtaking. Maintained by a team of volunteer gardeners who restored this little gem 21 years ago. When in Westboro, take a break from shopping and step back in time.

Imaginative plantings maintained by volunteers is a nice place to visit and enjoy. It is also frequented by the birds to add another dimension of enjoyment. It is a frequent setting for graduation and wedding photos.

Completely tended by volunteers, the garden nearly recreates the atmosphere of what the garden would have been like when tended by the family (except the areas that would have been vegetable gardens are now lawn.) The graves of the... More

A beautiful flower garden owned by the NCC but tended by volunteers. At the end of Westboro it is a quiet respite in a trendy district.
