Located six miles (nine kilometers) north of
the Canadian Horseshoe
Falls on the Niagara Parkway, in the beautiful garden setting is the
Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens and School of Horticulture. The School
of Horticulture was established in 1936 and it is the only residential
school for training horticultural students in Canada.
Visitors can enjoy 40 hectares (99 acres) of
gardens, including perennials, rhododendrons, azaleas, a formal
parterre garden, shade, herb and vegetable plantings, an aviary as well
as our world-famous Rose Garden featuring over 2,400 roses.
This wonderful area serves as the unique
outdoor classroom for
students attending the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture. The
training program at the school is designed to enable students to obtain
practical work experience by daily participation in horticultural
activities. Students are responsible for maintenance and development of
the school campus and numerous display gardens.
This is also home to the Butterfly
Conservatory and truly an enriching
experience for all seasons and one of North' America's most outstanding
landscapes and botanical collections.
