Parks Canada Celebrates the Year of the Garden

This year for Historic Places Days, take part in the Year of Garden celebrations by visiting some of the most beautiful gardens at Parks Canada.  Dive into history: explore gardens that have been carefully landscaped to replicate what they would have been like at that time. Discover Canada’s heritage in the most beautiful way!

Are you ready to Live the Garden Life? I invite you to travel along the 2022 Canada’s Garden Route or visit Parks Canada website to learn more.

By Darlene Fortier, Program Officer for the National Celebrations and Commemorations at Parks Canada.
