Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens


The Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens occupy more than six acres on the campus of Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia.

Since September 2002, the Gardens have provided a captivating environment for the investigation of native flora of the Acadian Forest Region. 

The Gardens are open daily from dawn to dusk (weather permitting.) The autumn is a beautiful time to see the trees of the Acadian Forest in full colour.
