What’s Blooming

The Park is alive with colour wherever you look.  Our recent rainy weather has been a blessing and the gardens are gorgeous right now.  A new feature are columns that have been constructed at entrances to the east and west sections of the Park. Volunteers have been busy with maintenance throughout the Park and are doing their best to keep up with weeding.

Visitors will also notice a new path constructed through the Rose Garden going east to west.  The path has been named ‘Margaret’s Path’ after Margaret Plain, a founding member and volunteer of the Park since 1990.  Thank you to all donors and the Plain family for their contributions to this project.  The path will keep Margaret’s memory alive as well as improve access for those with mobility issues, strollers or when when the Park hosts events or ceremonies in the Rose Garden.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Memory Lane path last summer.  Bricks are still available if you have been thinking of a special and enduring gift for family, a friend or yourself. See our Memory Lane page for more information, or email us at [email protected]

Garden Day

Our Garden Day event took place on July 30, 2023, with music, displays, treats and a scavenger hunt for the whole family. Our volunteers were available to answer public questions and give tours. We look forward to Garden Day next year in July! Stay tuned to this page for next year’s date.

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who has supported the Park with a donation, shopping in our Gift Shop, purchasing plants or by purchasing an engraved brick for the west Park path ‘Memory Lane’.

The Park is a non-profit charitable organization independently operated and maintained by volunteers on land leased from the City of St. Albert.  All funds raised from plant or giftware sales and garden rentals go directly to the gardens for operation and maintenance.  With restrictions on some fundraising activities during Covid, we do thank everyone who has made a donation to the Park through our website (Donate here), in person (donation box on the patio can be accessed from outside of the gate) or mailed to our office.  Your support of the Park is greatly appreciated.
