You might come for the animals, but end up spending more time than you bargained for admiring our botanical side. Wander along lush pathways throughout the 6 acres of the Dorothy Harvie Gardens. Explore a living library of trees and plants – including a few that might surprise you. Kiwi fruit in Alberta? You bet! All paths lead to the ENMAX Conservatory where you’ll find a steamy butterfly garden and jungle atmosphere – complete with banana trees and pineapple plants. And take a closer look at how people and plants are connected – from the air we breathe to the food we eat.
