Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens Reviews & Ratings

  • Not huge but a very interesting stop. Highlights of the garden for me was the greenhouse that included the opportunity to observe active experiments happening in the university as well as the very educational and fascinating medicinal/edible garden in which both Indigenous and European plants are on growth along with good information. If you like plants for more than just looking at, stop here.

  • This is a tranquil beautiful place to stroll around. There is a large Central area. The only downfall I seen was that there are several entrances and once it starts to get around dusk I would not recommend walking alone.

  • Intriguing to think someone decided they wanted to study various kinds of ferns. It's cool to see all the plants, flowers, cacti.

  • Amazing gardens, I loved this place. So many different areas so areas to see. I especially loved the medicinal and food plant garden.

  • I loved that these gardens were native Acadian forest plants and plants brought by early settlers to the maritimes. You can also look a current horticulture research being done at the university. Very peaceful, beautiful, and informative place!
