The winding paths and free-form beds of the English Garden are a feast for the senses in every season. The flowing layout of the English Garden is indicative of the English Landscape style, which sought to convey an idealized but approachable view of nature, as opposed to the regimented symmetry of a Formal Garden.

Cool gardens is a public exhibition of contemporary garden and art installations that offer a shift of sensation for the summer–cooling–as a general theme for public presentations in the downtown. The exhibit aims to bring architects, designers, landscape architects, and artists together to celebrate contemporary garden culture and the local landscape. The presentation of the cutting-edge garden designs, places design culture at the centre of summer activities in Winnipeg and at the same time, offers a pleasant relief from the summer exasperations.

Built in 1882 Daly House is the original house of Brandon’s first Mayor, Thomas Mayne Daly 11. The underlying theme of a Victorian Garden is man’s conquest over the elements – exemplified by the lawn. Victorian forbearers sought to create the perfect lawn and then to turn their lawns into outdoor parlours. The Garden includes plants such as prairie grasses, Manitoba developed roses, lavender and native plants which are drought tolerant. This will provide an urban ecology for various bird, butterfly and insect species that summer in the Brandon area.
International Peace Gardens
Located on Hwy. # 10 – 24 km. south of Boissevain, MB
These gardens are located on the International Border in the province of Manitoba and state of North Dakota. One is free to roam within the garden from one country to the other. The Peace Garden is more than flowers as it is dedicated to peace and home to informative sites: Conservatory, Interpretative Centre, Peace Chapel, AAS Trial Plant Gardens and North American Game Warden Museum. Noted for exquisite landscaping, the garden features a unique 5.5 m/18 ft. working Floral Clock with nearly 3,000 flowers, run by GPS. The Peace Chapel features three walls of fossil-embellished Manitoba limestone with quotations from “people of peace”. The September 11 Memorial displays 10 beams from the World Trade Centre in the formal garden. The International Peace Tower’s height, 35m/120 ft. high, symbolizes the soaring ambitions of the early immigrants arriving from the four corners of the world to Canada and the United States in the 1800’s and 1900’s. The Carillon Bell Tower sounds every quarter-hour from 14 chimes.
