It’s hard to find somewhere in this province that doesn’t celebrate maple in the spring - It’s one of Ontario’s crowning glories!  So find a sugarbush somewhere near you and enjoy a walk through the woods with the taste and smell of maple!

Royal Botanical Gardens
We’re close to spring, but no flowers are blooming yet. In the meantime, a great way to get a taste (and smell) for spring is at The Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Ontario.  The RBG can proudly take the prize for the largest botanical garden in Canada and is also home to the world’s largest collection of lilacs.
