The Garden: Jardin botanique de Montréal
One of the city’s jewels, it is recognized as one of the world’s greatest botanical gardens. It offers a colourful program of events, exhibitions, and activities all year long.
With its collection of 22,000 plant species and cultivars, 10 exhibition greenhouses, Frédéric Back Tree Pavilion, and more than 20 thematic gardens spread out over 75 hectares, it’s also a perfect place to enjoy fresh air and natural beauty.
Located just minutes from downtown Montréal, right near the Biodôme and Olympic Park, the Jardin botanique de Montréal is a veritable living museum of plants from the four corners of the globe.
Guest Presenter: Directrice Anne Charpentier
In 2019, Anne Charpentier was appointed Director of the Jardin botanique de Montréal at Espace pour la vie. She has since undertaken the realization of a Master Plan for the Botanical Garden, in order to propel the institution as a player for the ecological transition, in view of its hundredth anniversary in 2031.
