We came specifically for the Peony Festival and it was just as advertised only better! Beautiful gardens along with a good assortment of arts and crafts and food vendors. Great location along the Oshawa Creek and an easy walk from our hotel in downtown Oshawa....More

I love this place. Even when the peony festival is not in season, there are still plenty of flowers to see. Well laid out and a great place to take photos for a special occasion.
