Tropical Greenhouse

Bldg. 72, Arboretum, Central Experimental Farm, K1A 0C6 , Ottawa, Ontario

The elegant structure was originally built at Major’s Hill Park in downtown Ottawa and moved to the Farm in 1938 to be used for horticultural research. Now a heritage building, it became a tropical garden open to the public in the 1970s. This 1,600 sq ft tropical garden is found in a heritage building notable for its beautiful lines and traditional design. Raised beds frame the circular path featuring a variety of heat-loving plants, tropical rainforest natives, Cacti and succulents.

Open Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; closed Saturday for maintenance.
