Edmonton’s Botanic Garden

Another magical spot that I adore near Edmonton, is the University of Alberta Botanic Garden. If you missed my other Edmonton Things to Do posts, check them out here and here.

I felt just like a princess in a castle, waiting for her prince to come.

The gardens are a great place for taking photos, having a picnic, and just getting out and enjoying nature. They are currently adding on to the gardens so stay tuned for changes in years to come.

When to go to the Botanic Garden:

While the gardens are closed for the season, they do have events planned throughout the winter and will open again for regular, public hours on the first of May. I’m hoping to visit their Luminaria event in December to help get me into the holiday spirit. My boyfriend and I love to visit places like this for unique and inspiring dates.

The gardens are absolutely picturesque.

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, and I believe a garden speaks to an even greater extent. I often wonder what the flowers would say if they could speak.

So many nooks to explore.

Gardens were never really my thing, but I’ve begun to incorporate flowers into my everyday life more and more over the years. Every place I travel, I tend to visit a garden of some sort. It makes my heart happy to find a place close to home that has such lovely grounds.

I did visit the Botanic Garden rather late in the season, so I can’t wait to visit in the early summer next year.
