Garden Spotlight: The Palette of Kingsbrae Garden

Gardens to the north of Vermont and Maine offer classic gardens to visit this fall with pumpkin festivals and more!
Canada’s beloved Kingsbrae Garden in St. Andrews by-the-Sea, New Brunswick, resembles a vast art gallery, where visitors can wander through 27 acres of themed landscapes rendered in traditional and contemporary styles. Water features, historic structures, and works by renowned Canadian sculptors enhance fields and forests abloom with vibrant flowers numbering in the tens of thousands.
In contrast to the educational mission of most botanical gardens, this horticultural treasure was designed solely with the eye of the beholder in mind. Elegance reigns in the White, Rose, and Knot gardens, while more whimsical sights prevail in the Labyrinth & Maze and the Children’s Fantasy Garden.

Thoughtfully planned, inclusive spaces, such as the Scents & Sensitivity Garden and the nearby Therapy Garden, make Kingsbrae accessible and enjoyable for those with special needs. Enveloped by the splendor of nature, guests discover organic beauty that prompts creative expression but is, in its own right, a work of art beyond compare.
