The Walled Garden

The Walled Garden is a transition garden that marries the formal Georgian-style architecture of the K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre with the picturesque landscape of the Acadian Forest Region. Although at first glance the garden looks like a typical English garden, all of the plants are native species of the Acadian Forest Region. The garden is bordered to the east and north by the K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre building and by 10-foot-high brick walls on the west and south. This enclosure creates a microclimate that causes flowers to bloom approximately two weeks earlier than those in adjacent garden habitats.
