“A Piece of heaven”
Reviewed July 23, 2010

Even though Halifax's Public Gardens is more famous, for my money Annapolis Royals Gardens surpasses it. Its beauty resonates through all the seasons. Every season has a highlight whether is the first blush of coulor through the roses and onto the splendor of the fall. The designers have done an incrdible job of integrating it into the natural surroundings.

“Splendid gardens!”
Reviewed August 12, 2007

One of THE best gardens in the world!! Unbelievable collection of varied flowers. We visited with a British fellow who knew his flowers, and he, too, was VERY impressed with this garden!

In the summer, the gardens are open for a LONG day...till sundown, practically!

Do not miss while in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia!

“Beware the outer loop!”
Reviewed May 5, 2005

mosquitos nearly ate us alive on the outer loop. Otherwise the gardens were most enjoyable.
