The University of Alberta Botanical Garden blooms beautifully

13 August 2019

The University of Alberta Botanical Garden (formerly the Devonian Botanic Garden) has been attracting visitors and making the area greener since 1959. With multiple gardens and a modern architectural flare, the garden is a prime location for first-time visitors to the Edmonton area who want a taste of natural beauty. The garden offers guided tram and walking tours of the different collections. Kerry Mulholland, communications and marketing co-ordinator for the garden recommends a few must –see areas including the new Aga Khan Garden, a stunning four-hectare (11-acre) Mughal-inspired garden; the serene Kurimoto Japanese Garden; and the indoor showhouses—especially the Tropical Plant and Butterfly House.
