Garden Experience Guide

Parkwood National Historic Site

A glorious garden experience awaits at one of Canada’s last grand estate gardens and showcase of outstanding early 20th century design. Enjoy a glimpse into the lavish lifestyle of Canadian Autobaron R. S. McLaughlin, and the design & horticultural pursuits that great wealth and a large garden staff could command. Highlights include the spectacular art deco/moderne Formal Garden, designed in 1935 by renowned architect John Lyle, and summertime lunch by the splash of the fountains. The House & Garden experience can be enjoyed all summer, and mansion & greenhouses are open year round. Learn more at
