It has some lovely sculptures, lush green fields - a great place to spend the afternoon with kids. Moreover, its a great option to spend your time if you have booked the Rideau River Cruise as it leaves from here.

Our travel timetable meant that we could only go before it actually opened for the day. We could see many of the sculptures by walking around the perimeter fence, but it would have been better to be inside. The price is not inexpensive, but for...More

We stumbled onto these gardens by accident. I have never seen anything like this in my life and I am a gardener! Just unbelievable- you must see. It is only around for a couple of more months.

The sculptures are there this year and fabulous . However there is an entrance fee of $20 this year.... I believe they have family rates as well.
