About
At the heart of Marie-Victorin’s home village, discover an oversized garden that pays homage to him. It’s sure to surprise the whole family! Here, nature comes to life with giant and astonishing 3D mosaicultures and giant models of insects made from recycled metal. Discover them while on a self-guided or audio-guided tour through six theme gardens. Explore a tropical greenhouse housing exotic birds, learn more about botany or participate in activities and original tastings! Make the most of your visit and tour the multinational company Cascades, which converts recyclable materials.

It makes for a perfect leisurely stroll on a nice day. Great variety of flora to see. Amazing mosaicultures. Well worth the detour in my opinion.

My wife and i drove there just two hours from Montreal nice drive back country roads. The park was easy to find great parking. Very friendly and helpful staff. The grounds were very well kept and the paths and gardens were amazing. The chalet and restaurant were great with ice cold beer and some local brews on tap or bottle. Take your time and enjoy the day the whole thing will take you about 3 hours. But you can take longer if you like there is no rush.

These gardens are created in the memory of the man who created the Montreal Botanical Gardens years ago. They are lovely, with a good playground for little ones who are not interested in flowers, but it is expensive to go! For those that need a rest, there is a cafe which overlooks much of the gardens.

We went to the Parc Marie-Victorin to visit an antique fair and were pleasantly surprised to also find this beautiful park. Lovely gardens, great ideas to take home and a lovely cafeteria and gift shop. If you are near this area, this is a great place to stop for a restful visit.

For accessibility for people in wheelchairs, I give it a 5/10. The reason being the gravel pathways make it difficult to self-propel. There is also no warning that going to try and view the waterfalls is a particularly difficult route. In places, it is quite steep. The gardens themselves are amongst the best that I have seen. You can enjoy the different areas without worrying too much about what the names of the plants are. There are few labels. Though, this is a plus. It allows you to take in the grand visions that are before you. Just look at the whole picture and don't worry about the education. For people with children, there is a well-equipped play area. The site does have a restaurant that serves decent food. I did not note the prices so I can't tell you if it is reasonable. Worth a visit. Not difficult to find if you leave Rte 20 at exit 185 - it is well signposted.

While visiting in Levis, Quebec we went to Parc Marie-Victorin and walked the luscious garden path, they said approx 3km. Very well maintained gardens, trees and 3D mosaic sculptures, such as a bush looking like a ladybug , or a bush looking like a gardener. Wear comfortable footwear and bring water to drink. There was also an edible garden area were a host would describe something she had to offer as a sample. We saw different kinds of tomatoes that we never new we had such as a purple tomato. My daughter, 14, who doesn't like tomatoes actually tree and like the yellow tomato, as it is a sweeter type. Only thing we didn't like was the bathroom halfway through the route was closed, so you either have to walk back to main entrance or walk to end to go. Beautiful nonetheless!!

We packed a picnic and spent a few hours walking through the gardens and falls. Especially enjoyed the General store and all the antiques....

We were travelling with friends through the country surrounding Kingsey Falls and made the decision to picnic on the Parc Marie-Victorin site. The tables near the children's amusement park were shaded and much appreciated on this hot day. It was beautifully clean and maintained and our friend enjoyed a little snooze in the hammock after lunch.Along the path there are many places to sit and enjoy the scenery such as the falls or the birds as well as the flower arrangements and the variety of trees and sculptures. The price was a little steep (18$ for adults or 16$ for seniors) but we enjoyed the visit and our time together. It is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy being alive.

The park is just a wonderland of greenery. We went on a very hot day, but went at 9 a.m. (opening) so with all the shade available, it was very pleasant. There was more shade than I expected and also lots of places to sit if you wanted to rest. There were picnic tables and hammocks, although the hammocks were wet from a rain when we were there. Besides the flowers, trees and 'scultures', there is now an old-time General Store filled with antiques like an ice box, washing machine, etc. If you wanted, you could really spend the whole day there....take a picnic or eat at the little cafe.
We bought a Groupon deal, so the cost was very affordable. I wanted to go back the next day to see if I missed anything (I DID feel a bit confused about the paths....trying to see it all according to the map they supply...) All in alll, a lovely place to spend time.
