Kingsbrae Horticulture Garden

St. Andrews, NB

Glenn Group was selected as prime consultant from a pool of nationally recognized firms to undertake this project from conception through to construction. The gardens on this 27-acre site are representational of the summer estate of St. Andrews-By-The-Sea. They also act as a training and educational centre for the landscape industry and home gardeners, offering courses with topical information on new plants, and gardening tips. The plan was developed to be operationally self-sustaining. Natural habitats are planned to become attractions within the garden, including interpretation and protection measures. Within two years of opening, Canadian Gardening Magazine ranked it one of the top 10 public gardens in Canada. In 2001 it was awarded “Best Outdoor Attractions Site” – Attractions Canada Award, and it was designated a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary and in 2013 it was named Garden of the Year by the Canadian Garden Tourism Awards.
