Connaught Park

Connaught Park is named in honour of Arthur William Patrick Albert (1840-1942), Duke of Connaught who served as Governor General of Canada 1911-1916.

A symbol of British Monarchy, the roses are a key feature in the Park, grown in Pierre Elliott Trudeau Rose Garden.

Our enchanted walk takes us through the Garden as the Roses while the roses are in bloom.
