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.

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... More

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... More

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... More

We were not expecting to encounter such a beautiful and well presented garden sanctuary. This place is a 10! Bring a picnic, enjoy the play structures, get the audio guide and be educated. We can't say enough about our visit here. If you are a fan of gardening this is a must see. It's also moderately accessible for strollers and... More

Perhaps because we visited in June the gardens were not what I expected. Some of the sculptures were not in good shape. The grass... replaced by weed. The fee is a little high for what you get, and the audioguide is paid apart.

We enjoyed walking around these gardens although in places they did look a little neglected. Unfortunately our experience at the cafe was dreadful - don't bother.

Beautiful location with lots of beautiful gardens. Amazing sculptures made from recycled material and we even saw a hummingbird moth! Perfect for a nice summer day family activity. You can rent audio equipment to walk you through the park and listen to explanations on the building of the various exhibits.

Visited these gardens a few weeks ago not knowing what to expect. We were very impressed and will definitely go back. Bring a pic nic and take your time to really appreciate all the flower arrangements. Well worth the trip.
