Kingsbrae Garden

220 King St.
St. Andrews, NB E5B 1Y8

A 27-acre horticultural public garden, established in 1997, situated in Canada's premier seaside resort town, St Andrews-by-the-Sea. Kingsbrae Garden won Attraction Canada's national award for "Best Developed Outdoor Site in 2001" (Category A), and has been named in the "Top Ten Public Gardens in Canada."

The Garden offers self-guided or (bilingual) guided interpretive tours, a licensed café, art gallery, garden-related gift shop -- all housed in the original manor home of the estate -- as well as a retail plant centre.

Kingsbrae Garden is made up of many individual gardens, both heritage and modern styles, with new demonstration gardens added each year.

There is always something to see:

Kingsbrae Garden has many season members, who like to come frequently to visit their favourite corner, sit on one of the numerous garden benches or have tea on the Café terrace, overlooking magnificent gardens towards Passamaquoddy Bay. Delightful!

In 2003, for the first time, Kingsbrae Garden was open for the holiday season, all aglow as the "Garden of Lights" with more than 30,000 lights illuminating approximately 1/3 of the Garden, and a silent auction of 19 gorgeous donor-decorated Christmas trees; all the proceeds went to the local food bank and youth centre.
