The beauty of our country lies in its diversity. And it’s the celebration of this diversity that will define and strengthen us for future generations. This is the vision behind Canada’s Diversity Gardens.
Canada's Diversity Gardens is the final major phase of the $200 million redevelopment campaign to revitalize and rejuvenate Assiniboine Park.
Plants are essential to life. Throughout history, the availability of plants for food, medicine, and the necessities of life have shaped
cultures around the world. They are the one true global common denominator across all cultures and all time, and they unite us all
as Manitobans and as Canadians. Using plants as the medium, Canada’s Diversity Gardens will tell the cultural story of the relationships that exist between people and plant life.
Throughout the four cornerstones - The Leaf, The Indigenous Peoples’ Garden, The Cultural Mosaic Gardens, and The Grove - an exploration of the human connection with plants and nature will showcase our nation’s extraordinary multicultural heritage. Visitors will discover the role plants have in shaping the life and identity of their community and their country – past, present and future.
Interpretive themes explored throughout Canada's Diversity Gardens include: food and drink, health and well-being, beauty and expression, spirituality and consciousness, and sustainability and conservation.
Imagine a place where nature, culture and community unite. Imagine a place that inspires us to live in harmony with nature and each other. Imagine Canada’s Diversity Gardens.
