Hendrie Park has something for everyone! Enjoy a day meandering through its collections, displays and interesting landscape features, visitors to Hendrie Park can smell a rose or be challenged by the thought-provoking stories in the medicinal garden. 

Fun fact! The 100-hectare sanctuary is centred on the Grindstone Creek Valley. The area features forested slopes with towering trees, a 60-hectare river-mouth marsh complex and four creeks. Transferred to the Gardens in 1941 for ecological protection, it stretches to the end of Carroll’s Bay and contains the finest collection of floodplain wetlands on Western Lake Ontario. 

Got a green thumb? Enjoy a day in the sun and become a seasoned horticulturalist at Hendrie Park!
