Renowned amongst the wonders of Québec and one of the largest gardens in North America, the Reford Gardens are a floral paradise on the shores of the St. Lawrence River.
Close to 300 species and varieties of plants are displayed in some fifteen gardens. In the Estevan Lodge, a permanent exhibit reveals the history of the family of Elsie Reford, the creator of the gardens from 1926 to 1958. To fully appreciate your visit, you are invited to the Estevan Lodge restaurant. Chef Pierre-Olivier Ferry offers a menu inspired by the flavours and colours of the Gardens, as well as the region's best known products carefully selected by our producers.
The International Garden Festival presents contemporary gardens designed by landscape architects, architects, and artists from all over the world. Conceptual gardens invite visitors to explore contemporary art, and also invite children to enjoy various fun and interactive installations.
