Interesting, relaxing, and beautiful. Great for relaxing with friends, or studying in trees, or viewing the stars even.

We have visited on May 6, 2018 . It's kind of early , but still the garden is really nice. The problem is to find a washroom. Only two portlets for such a grate garden.

Worth the visit; in the heart of the city. It is a beautiful spot for a walk and right near the University of Guelph. Bring your camera.

A great place for a quiet walk. If you need a break from the crowds, go here. Lots of parking, lots of space to be by yourselves. Beautiful.

Lots of trails right within the city. The property is well-maintained and a popular place on the weekends. The meditation garden is a fun place to count frogs in the summer, and the Italian garden has statues of goddesses and quiet benches to sit.

Went there with a group of students for some nature photography... lots of different scenery to enjoy in a clean and tranquil setting.
