In celebration of the early spring we've had this year, The Royal Botanical Gardens historic Rock Garden is opening early, this Easter weekend. The Rock Garden was built from 1930 to 1931 on the site of an abandoned gravel pit as part of a make-work beautification project during the Great Depression, and today, it appears as if it was carved out of nature itself. The Rock Garden will remain open on weekends throughout April from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Guests of The RBG can also experience the beauty of such early blooms as the striped squill, forsythia, and periwinkle at Hendrie Park, located next to the RBG Centre. Take in the extensive daffodil collection, or wander inside for some delicious indoor fun at Chocolate: The Exhibition, open daily from 10 a.m. 5 p.m. Hop on by The RBG this Easter weekend to celebrate early spring with family and friends.
