Enjoyable space
Aug 2021
I spent an hour and a half here with my 12 yr old and 7 yr old, and we have a nice, relaxing time. For me, I enjoyed the beautiful flowers. The kids were fascinated by the frogs around the pool and the chickens.

We also spent 20 minutes looking at the stick insects they have on display in their small collection.

It's very convenient to get to, right off the highway... but that does come with a downside because you do hear that traffic, which detracts from the otherwise very peaceful surroundings.

So beautiful!

Enjoyed an after dinner walk through the park. It is beautiful and very romantic. There is also a place for kids but we didn't go there. Just enjoyed a quiet walk and admired the flowers and different edible plants.

hidden gem

These gardens are amazing. Plenty of activity even in late September but I am sure that in spring and early summer the blooms would have been more impressive. If in the area I would highly recomend this stop. Allow 2 to3 hours.

Interesting
Jun 2019
We visited in June 2019 with a free pass from the NB Library systems. It could have been the time of year we were there, but in my opinion the botanical garden in St. Andrews is much better. This place has a cute gift shop and restaurant, but the line up to at was out the door, long wait times, so we didn't stay for that. There is an exhibit right inside the main entrance with bugs, which was very fascinating although we almost missed going into it. since it isn't labelled very well. It didn't take us long to go around the park, and very few things were actually in bloom. Beware there are a lot of Canada geese (and cute babies) lurking around the property, so don't wear nice shoes and watch where you walk. We met an artist in residence who was very nice, and saw a variety of different plants. Would recommend if you've never been, but I probably won't be going back.

Worth seeing MORE THAN ONCE
Aug 2019
Great garden we'd set as one of our destinations with our trip. Worth spending 2-3 hours to see it all at your leisure. Also have special exhibitions in rotation for a separate admission fee. Worth seeing at various times over same year or to come back from one year to the next.

Beautiful Gardens
Aug 2019
This was my second trip here, and it was worth the return. There are over a dozen different gardens, plus the displays outside the wall. It is well laid out and the gardens are colorful and well maintained.

Finally a bucket list item done.
Jul 2019 • Couples
My wife has been wanting to visit the Botanical Gardens for many years. We finally did it on our 47th Anniversary. She was so pleased and so was I. A must stop on your way to or from New Brunswick. The best time is July or August. The fall can also be a great time. Excellent and knowledgeable staff. If Luc Cyr (The Carver) is there, you must stop and converse with him. Also enjoyed the classical guitar by Jean. The smell of the roses in particular was superb. Great lunch cafe.

Very nice spot

It is very nice and well done. It was not in full bloom but nevertheless nice. The little cafe had delicious ice cream. Everything is made right there. The downside were the little black flies. They just were after me right and left.
