  • A stunning, well kept garden very close to Victoria Lake. Ample parking with an aviary outside too. There's a Mud Duck café close by for snacks. Lovely display and a wide variety of plants.  more »
  • Stopped by the gardens after walking around Virginia Lake. My friend and I were there 3 years ago and we were disappointed to see the exact same layout and art display as when were were there last.  more »

  • One of my favourite places. The Winter Gardens is magical all year round. The floral display changes with the season or special calendar event. The Christmas display is always fabulous. It is such a joy to wander along the pathways, past the wishing well, the goldfish pond, the tunnel, the fountains and other water features. And all this under cover; great for a rainy or cloudy day, especially if you pop into the cafe next door. The outdoor garden has lots of seating, a fern grove, art installations and are immaculate. The bird song is delightful! The Aviary, Playground and Bowl are a must see too plus the walk around Virginia Lake. A great place to stop for a rest while on State Highway 3 or for locals to enjoy.
  • My father-in-law built the Virginia Lake fountain. It is one of his claims-to-fame as a civil engineer. The park itself is in a beautiful setting in a beautiful provincial town. Good coffee shop there.
