Since its founding in 1885, Niagara Parks has been recognized as a global leader in the flower garden. In 1894, the company opened its doors to two modest wooden structures with the intention of cultivating seasonal plants for Queen Victoria Park. Soon after, in the year 1897, the first floral conservatory was established.
In November of 1946, the structure that is now known as the Floral Showhouse first opened to the public. In 1951, the north and south houses were added, and in June of 1980, the front reception and gift shop were opened. The front reception and gift shop feature a large glass-enclosed ceiling, which enables our horticulturists to grow large palms and other tropical trees.
In our days, the Floral Showhouse is home to a number of stunning exhibits that run throughout the year and feature collections of tropical plants, ferns, and orchids.
The outdoor sculpture installation features miniature lifelike representations of Ontario landmarks, such as replicas of Muskoka Cottages and Parkwood Estate. There is even a vintage train that winds through the buildings, giving the area a village-like atmosphere.
During the summer, it is also worthwhile to explore the rest of the well-kept property, which features rose gardens and tranquil ponds.
