Spring is in bloom throughout Oakville!

 

Nature lovers, blooming artists, and budding photographers alike love living in the picturesque city of Oakville! If you haven't taken the opportunity to stop and smell the roses throughout our wonderful city, Rockliffe Residences has a list of our favourite parks that are blossoming with natural beauty.

 

Gairloch Gardens

1306 Lakeshore Road East

This beautiful 10.85-acre gallery park, just minutes from our properties on Howard Avenue and Allan Street, is one of the best in the city for its floral displays. There are 15,000 annuals blooming between June and September and an extensive display of rose gardens. Throughout the park there are many benches and countless photo opportunities.

 

Shell Park

3307 Lakeshore Road West

This 50-acre park, just minutes from our Nelson Street buildings, is home to over 10,000 annuals blooming from May to September, and over 500 rose gardens. Many new plant varieties can be found here, including those grown from seeds donated by All-American Selection. Additionally, this park features community gardening plots for residents to grow their own veggies.  

 

Nottinghill Park

1150 Nottinghill Gate

This 10-acre park, just 10-minutes from our Brant Street property, boasts over 7,500 annuals blooming from April to October, four perennial gardens, and a collection of ornamental grass. The park includes an adjacent parking lot, various sports fields, a playground, and during the winter months, a skating rink.

 

Oakville Municipal Greenhouse

1100 Cornwall Road

You may know that all the flowers, hanging baskets, and planters that you see throughout the city get their start at the municipal greenhouses in Oakville. But did you know that there is also a conservatory here filled with tropical plants, trees, and even a pond with turtles and other aquatic life? This little tropical oasis, open to the public year-round (except during July and August), is a beautiful escape from those rainy days or snowy months. Bring your camera, sketch pad, or just a cup of coffee and enjoy the breathtaking surroundings.
