In this spectacular garden covering 52 acres you will find opportunities for photography, walking, running, bird watching, picnicking and more. 

From the parking lot walk along any paved walkway until you spot a posted map (they're all over the place) then plan your day's adventure around the parks many attractions. Some of my favorite places to visit include the Cunningham House, the Heritage Rose Garden, the New Zealand garden area, and the Avon River bank.

Look out for a variety of really impressive old growth trees.
