Devonian Botanic Garden Edmonton Review
The Devonian Garden Edmonton was established in 1959 and is part of the University of Alberta's Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences department.
The Gardens' three main purposes are research, public education and horticultural gardens.
Visitors can enjoy 80 acres of cultivated display areas with an additional 110 acres of trails, woodlands and preserved ecological areas. Though tram tours are offered at specific times, patrons need to be prepared to walk when visiting the gardens.
Indoor greenhouses and gardens and outdoor gardens and display areas showcase a variety of diverse gardens.
Devonian Gardens include an herb garden, Native People's garden, arid plant garden, plants of Alberta garden, butterfly garden, peony collection, alpine garden, and much more.
One of the most popular gardens is the beautiful and peaceful Kurimoto Japanese Garden. A popular site for weddings and photo shoots, the garden can be booked for special events such as weddings.
The Ozawa Pavilion, a Japanese guesthouse and tearoom, is also available to book for the bridal couple's wedding night. Call or check online for wedding and photography packages. Book early because this venue sells out quickly.
The Devonian Botanic Gardens hosts a gift shop, sells seeds and interesting plants, highlights the work of area artisans, and schedules tram tours. Several special events are held throughout the year at the Gardens.
