Originally established in 1916 as part of the Federal Agricultural Research Station, now the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre, the 6 hectare, 15-acre Summerland Ornamental Gardens expanse was designed to help new residents, many from the U.K. and other rainy climates, choose ornamental plants for their gardens that would be suitable for the dry Okanagan climate. In collaboration with Agriculture Canada, the site is maintained with help from the non-profit society, the Friends of Summerland Ornamental Gardens. As you stroll through the Gardens you will have views of Okanagan Lake, Giant’s Head Mountain and the Trout Creek Trestle railroad bridge, an outstanding engineering feat constructed for the Kettle Valley Railway. Walk by the demonstration garden beds and learn principles of water-smart gardening with the diverse Welcome Garden, the Xeriscape Garden, the Cactus Garden, the Iris Beds, the Meadow, the Butterfly Garden, the shade gardens, and more. The gardens are open year round and the Friends of the Garden Society request a $5.00 per person donation.
