Mississauga Garden Festival
A paid tour of private gardens is the highlight of this year’s second annual Mississauga Garden Festival, but at its centrepiece are the free family-oriented activities at The Riverwood Conservancy, Mississauga’s unique, 60-hectare (150-acre) nature park on the banks of the historic Credit River.
An artisan marketplace, food vendors, children’s activities and talks—the popular Paul Zammit appears again this year—are some of the Festival events. Tours of the Riverwood’s MacEwan Terrace Gardens and the Enabling Garden are also included.
The private gardens of Credit Woodlands on the paid, self-guided tour include ravine gardens, woodland and naturalized gardens that reflect the area, plus imaginative front yard gardens and spectacular outdoor living areas .
Cloverleaf Garden Club and Applewood Garden Club are joined this year by the Credit Valley Horticultural Society to present the annual Festival.
