Gairloch Gardens, you could drive past it without knowing it's there. A beautiful rose garden, large and mature trees, unobstructed view of the lake. Definitely worth the visit if you wanted to enjoy the view of Lake Ontario, smell the flowers, sit under a tree....More

It a lovely walk, not too long, through the gardens and to Lake Ontario. The gardens are very well attended. There is an art gallery there with various exhibits that change often, so there's always something new to see. Adequate parking.

Lots of parking. Not usually busy. I took my young son for a walk through the gardens, down to the lake to splash stones. It was a great afternoon

These gardens are gorgeous and it is very relaxing looking out on the Lake. The rose garden and beautiful pond add to the peaceful atmosphere. Parking is limited though.

The gardens are gorgeous. Walking around the grounds and by the lake is relaxing. The gallery is usually open on the weekend too and with a small donation only you can see the artwork on display. Great to bring visitors.

I am sorry. I don't know. That is a good question for the Town of Oakville as they issue the permits. What an exciting time this must be for you!

Professional photographers for weddings and special occasions require a city permit. Otherwise regular visitors can snap away at no charge.
