Passionate Brian Scullion, the founder of this massive garden, has purchased this land over 30 years ago. 2000 plants from all over the world were planted and have adapted well to the climate of the Saguenay region. This horticultural gem offers also a mini-farm, kids’ wooden playgrounds, walking paths (3.5km) and picnic tables. Choose between a walk or renting an electric cart to discover the garden.
So close from Montreal, you can enjoy a full family day outdoor. This dream garden is offering a maze, lavender fields and beautiful monumental sculptures with living plants. We spent about two hours in the garden and then visited the nearby Hudson village with its charming flea market – Finnegan’s Market (open on the weekends).
Best day to spend on a summer day, dip or canoe/kayak in Lake Raynaud, circle the lake (2km) with 10 ultra fun fitness stations, visit the Birds Garden and the Velan Pavilion Observatory to watch the Sun!
