Kingsbrae Garden is a flower lovers dream. Even for non-gardeners, stepping through the gates of Kingsbrae Garden into these lush grounds feels like entering the Garden of Eden, perhaps even heaven.
Sprawled over 27 acres, Kingsbrae Garden is located in the beautiful town of St. Andrews-by-the-Sea. The gardens contain over 2500 species of perennials as well as numerous types of trees and shrubs. There’s also a nature walk through the Acadian Forest, a sculpture garden, a windmill and animals to entertain the kids.
I had never visited the gardens before but after seeing a stunning shot of the entrance taken by a friend, I knew I had to drop by for a visit.
I was absolutely stunned by the size of the Kingsbrae Garden. As Donald would say, it’s huuugge. You really need several hours to fully explore the grounds and see everything. All I kept thinking while I was walking around and marveling at everything was how much work it must be to maintain this perfectly manicured tribute to nature. There are so many interesting things to examine, and so many flowers bursting with colour. I’m sure it’s a full time job for a whole staff of green thumbs.
I would say that the flower trees at the entrance and the sculpture garden were two of my favourite areas, but literally everything is worth seeing. Kudos to those who work so hard to maintain such a wonderful addition to our province, for tourists and locals alike. It’s truly something that everyone can enjoy.
Below are some photos from my visit.
If you’ve ever wondered if Kingsbrae Garden is worth a visit, or if you haven’t been there lately, please go! For anyone who likes to take photos or who is a gardener, this place is amazing. I couldn’t stop taking pictures and every one was as beautiful as the last.
