Jardins de Métis / Reford Gardens

A National Historic Site and Québec heritage site, the Reford Gardens / Jardins de Métis are an obligatory stop for all those visiting eastern Québec. Cultural space and tourist destination for over 50 years, the Reford Gardens provides visitors with experiences for every sense. Visitors to this historic domain of more 200 acres can admire the splendours of some 3,000 species and varieties of native and exotic plants displayed in fifteen gardens. One of the highlights of any visit is Estevan Lodge, the 1887 fishing lodge built by Lord Mount Stephen. Today, it welcomes visitors to its dining rooms and temporary exhibitions. In the museum explore the remarkable story of Elsie Reford and her summers spent salmon-fishing and gardening. New additions to your experience, the Vegetable Garden and the Garden Tool Museum. Discover the edible flowers and herbs that inspire the chef of the Estevan Lodge Restaurant.

From June 27, the International Garden Festival presents conceptual gardens by leading designers from around the world. On exhibit are some of the most imaginative gardens to be seen anywhere, enough to excite the cultural tourist and offering a giant playground of interactive spaces for children and families.
