Residents can now experience the City’s greenhouse virtually by visiting CityofKingston.ca/Gardens.
Every year, the City opens the doors to its greenhouse in Rodden Park and invites residents to come and enjoy the flowers and tropical plants on display. This year, due to the pandemic, the City is introducing this initiative to allow everyone to safely enjoy the greenhouse from the comfort of their homes.
“We know many people look forward to visiting the greenhouse every year, and we tried to provide that same experience virtually,” says Troy Stubinski, Operations Manager, Public Works.
The virtual experience will take residents on a tour of the greenhouse learn more about:
- this year’s spring bulbs and tropical plants
- the history of the greenhouse
- the work that skilled horticulturalists do to prepare for planting season
