You won’t be able to resist stopping and smelling the roses in Burlington this summer.
It’s soon approaching and we absolutely can’t wait.
That’s when the rejuvenated Rose Garden is opening at the Royal Botanical Gardens’ Hendrie Park.
You can expect to see major crowds from June to September. (Keep in mind, Hendrie Park currently remains open for visitors).

Centennial Rose Garden was first planted in 1967.
But pesticide laws, changing climates, and disease-prone roses have warranted a re-do.
The rose collection has suffered.
Construction is underway on the new project, featuring diversity of both plants and garden design.
The new Rose Garden plan features a spectacular display of roses and companion plants intended to extend seasonal interest and keep diseases at bay.
RBG’s focus is on disease-resistant, disease-tolerant and cold-hardy roses, including Canadian introductions, according to information posted on its website.
It’s being billed as an “innovative, sustainable and inspiring experience, the quintessential rose garden for Canada’s largest botanical garden.”
Donations are welcome.
