Gardens of Gananoque

Two gardens, one-stop.

The Town of Gananoque Confederation Park sits on the shores of the Gananoque River and is steps away from the Town Hall, shops and restaurants. This park boasts one of Canada's largest outdoor contemporary art exhibits around its walks and beautiful fountain. Showcased are pieces from Canadian artists through the Canadian Council for the Arts along with local artists who depict the history and environment of the area.

Directly across the river is the Gananoque Horticultural Society Garden, donated in 1924 by the Macdonald family, one of the community's founding families. It was the site of Gananoque's first post office and now hosts a series of flower beds that display perennials and shrubs in both shade and sun. A pollinator garden was recently added, featuring perennials attracting bees and butterflies. This park is owned by the local horticultural society and is maintained by its volunteers.
