Our garden is primarily for educational purposes. Indeed, it was created 27 years ago by the Institut de technologie agroalimentaire du Québec (ITAQ) in Saint-Hyacinthe to be an open-air laboratory for students.
Today, it has 24 thematic gardens, for example the Mediterranean Garden or the Medieval Garden, covering a total area of 4.5 hectares.
Come lose yourself among the flowerbeds of the French Garden, which proudly houses more than 3,000 annuals produced by ITAQ students. Meditate on a bench in the Japanese Garden in front of the tea house, letting the wind caress your face. Let your children play freely in the Amadahy Kindergarten or tenderly kiss your sweetheart in the Garden of Love.
Gateway to our garden, the eco-responsible horticultural pavilion includes a green roof that you could visit for inspiration at home. It also offers you the possibility of admiring green walls.
In terms of facilities, we provide you with toilets, picnic tables, a mini-shop and a terrace with tables and shelters.
Come celebrate the Year of the Garden by (re)connecting with nature! Bring your picnic basket and have a good time with family or friends in an enchanting setting! Take full advantage of your day with us and the beauty of nature to rejuvenate your body and soul!
