Maplelawn Garden is one of the Capital Region’s most unique gardens because it is a rare example of a well-preserved 19th century walled garden. In 1993, a group of volunteers came together as the Friends of Maplelawn Garden with the objective of preserving and rehabilitating the walled garden. They discovered a large variety of perennials still thriving within its walls, such as the old peonies for which the garden was once famous.Visit Website

Getting someone to visit a garden in summer is a snap: we all know gardens are striking in the summer months, with flowers galore. But what about fall? Garden visitors diminish with falling temperatures, as if they’re convinced the show is over as of Labour Day. But it isn’t. There’s still plenty to see in Canada’s public gardens right up until snowfall and even beyond.
