City Gardens


A bouquet for all Montrealers

In 1954, Henry Teuscher designed three model backyards and had them laid out at the Botanical Garden. The space was later used as a berry garden and then as a trial garden for annuals.

Jardin botanique de Montréal
(Jean-Pierre Bellemarre)

In 1999, in partnership with professional landscapers, architecture schools and architects, nine small city backyard-size gardens were created, each on a highly original theme.

This space will take a new direction in 2011.
