Trip Planner: Canada / British Columbia / Okanagan Valley / Summerland / Summerland Ornamental Gardens
On the hills overlooking spectacular Lake Okanagan, the Summerland Ornamental Gardens were founded in 1916 as part of the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre. The Research Centre and Gardens were developed to assist pioneer orchardists in the wilderness of the Okanagan Valley to grow fruit, as well as trees and flowers for their home gardens. In 1991, a local group of citizens formed the Friends of the Research Station Gardens Society to work in collaboration with Agriculture Canada to maintain the gardens. The Friends of the Gardens society raises funds to pay gardeners and sponsor public workshops and programs. Summerland Ornamental Gardens is a showpiece of gardening possibilities and options in the Okanagan Valley for local residents and visitors.Use our Summerland trip planner to arrange your visit to Summerland Ornamental Gardens and other attractions in Summerland.

Nice little place to stop and smell the roses. The ones at the front have the most varied smell.
I volunteer here. A lot is being worked on right now to recover it; but it's still a pretty peaceful, and enchanted space if you're into nature and history.
