Sherbrooke's own botanical garden! Take a quiet walk through the park and greenhouse and see the plant sculptures (a family of frogs) around the pond. The dragon awaits behind the greenhouse where you can also go through the japanese garden. And it's all free!

This park is home to a nice looking pond and a lot of different festivals during the summer. In the winter it is turned into a skating pods and is just as lovely. If you like geocaching there are a few here as well.

Lot of history in this Park. Nice place to visit and relax. The City of Sherbrooke owned this Park and they have a large greenhouse to visit and some activities during the Sring and the Summer.

Beautiful garden, very lovely pond and fountain. It's quite a nice area to sit and read or do some outdoor yoga. It's large enough to be shut off from the surrounding streets and the sound of cars, so it makes for a peaceful park. All...More
