Garden Wildlife Area
Take things down a gear during a relaxing stroll through Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens. Established in 1986 in a scenic position overlooking a tidal river valley, the gardens explore Nova Scotia's natural heritage, as well as the changing ways that communities have tamed, used, and appreciated the plant life native to the region. Walk through the historically themed gardens, such as an apple orchard arranged according to 18th-century practices; a Victorian garden bright with colorful annuals; and a large pine forest, representing pre-Columbian times when the area was inhabited by the Mi'kmaq. A visit to Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Annapolis Royal tour planner to plot your vacation.

  • Lovely botanical gardens. Worth a visit when you're in the area. Good place to have a small picnic and take pictures. Be aware of nesting dowitchers though, they might attack ;)
  • It's a great place to walk, relax and enjoy a nice sunny day.
  • Nice and good but not worth the money
  • This garden is absolutely beautiful from spring, summer and fall. Feels like your Alice in wonderland when walking through. Two thumbs way up!
  • Lovely!! Even in late fall when we visited. Reasonable admission and a nice walk. The gardens are as pretty and quaint as the rest of Annapolis Royal.
