Very excited to go to the botanical garden. The brochure depicted 15 different specialty areas, including a rose garden, shade garden, celestial garden, etc. What a disappointment! The garden had many weeds, and there was very little to see, despite it being summertime. It was quite small and took us very little time to see everything..which was our choice. Save... More

This is a must-see for gardeners from the Canadian Prairies. Because of the cold winter climate in this part of New Brunswick, almost everything that is growing here will also grow on the Prairies, not the case for botanical gardens in B.C., Ontario or even Montreal. For people from warmer climates, it would just be another very nice garden, I... More

The gardens are very pretty and we felt so relaxed walking through the various themed areas. The gardens are manicured to perfection and we saw some interesting species. I'm not a huge garden person, but definitely would return.

On our way back from Nova Scotia, we stopped here just before crossing into Quebec. It's quite an enchanting garden although small for a botanic garden, at only 8 acres. There's lots of variety, some beautiful specimen plants (some invasive species :-( ) and a beautiful water garden running through the park. They have a great vegetable and herb garden... More

We stopped at this because my wife is a very avid gardener. To say that this is a great place to visit would be an understatement. When you consider that this place is located in an area just off a major vacation route it is not a very well known attraction. Plus they have a great restaurant that you can... More

I stopped here briefly before leaving New Brunswick on a road trip back to my hometown of Saskatchewan. I thought the gardens and sculptures were lovely. The butterfly room was a treat although there was only one type of butterfly as far as I could tell. I was also looking forward to the roses and many had seen better days.... More

I was disappointed this time, we had been there a few years ago and it was so beautiful that we wanted to return and I wanted to return with my granddaughter, but it didn't measure up to my expectations. I was sure that it would have improved although I didn't know how it could. Last week it looked tired and... More

We stopped here on our way east. It was a very enjoyable visit. So nice and peaceful well laid out with a very good variety of plants. There is also an area in the main building that houses a live butterfly area. All in all would highly recommend a visit.

This botanical garden is one of the best in this part of North America. The plants are nicely grouped and well tended. And easy to find... once you've found Edmunston. The garden also has a resident artist or two and some very interesting sculptures. Only one minor complaint: The people who drew the map of the garden should try to... More

The gardens are beautiful and it's worth the stop. Our favourite part was probably the hedge people towards the entrance depicting the historical people (native and Acadian). You could probably do the entire garden anywhere from 1 to 3 hours depending on how much time you take to relax and enjoy the natural beauty or take photos. A few of... More
