Garden Nature / Park
Situated on a hill overlooking a bay, Kingsbrae Garden Plant Centre features more than 50,000 perennials, including the Wollemi pine tree "Pericles"--Canada's first "Jurassic living fossil." Alpacas, peacocks, and pygmy goats roam through its many themed gardens, which are crossed by streams and dotted with ponds. Choose from among the ornamental grass garden, gravel garden, rose garden, bird and butterfly garden, as well as a special "Scents and Sensitivity Garden," designed for the visually impaired. Find your way through the cedar maze, see a working Dutch windmill, or walk a trail through rare old-growth forest. Play croquet or bocce ball on the lawn or have a fresh-from-the-garden lunch at the cafe. Other attractions include numerous sculptures and a Children's Fantasy Garden, which is open seasonally.

  • This is a nice garden to visit but the cost of visiting keeps going up, $16 for an adult now, I remember $10 a person not long ago! And you really have to come late June to August...Anything before la...  more »

  • The gardens are not overly manicured and formal, so it is very relaxing and pleasant to stroll through and see the many areas with their own themes. There's something for everyone, including interesti...  more »

  • Beautiful place to be. My first time was yesterday with New Brunswick's festival place on tour! What a beautiful place!
  • Can spend hours here looking through the wonderful gardens, checking out the sculptures and visiting the animals. Great place to bring the family.
  • A pretty garden but I'm not sure that it lives up to the marketing hype. To be fair we visited in the fall so the gardens were not at they're peak. I've visited many many gardens and was "slightly" disappointed by this one. That said ... if you find yourself in St. Andrews (magical), check out the garden. It's reasonably priced and the staff are "Maritime" friendly.
  • Lots to see, kids and adults both enjoyed the various gardens, sculptures and animals.
  • Lovely gardens and easy foot paths for older people, very charming tea house offers nice lunches, desserts, tea and coffee.
