Whistling Gardens

Relaxation and respite await you at Whistling Gardens, Norfolk County’s premiere award-winning botanical garden.

Environmental stewardship is at the forefront of new developments at Whistling Gardens. They are creating wetlands for amphibians and other wildlife in partnership with the Alternative Land Use Services (ALUS) program. Currently more than 4.7 acres of the property are reforested with natural wild grass plantings, native trees and birdhouses.

Whistling Gardens is  home to the largest public collection of conifers in the world with over 2,500 species, hybrids and cultivars. One of the oldest trees in their conifer collection is 34 years old but it is only 8 feet tall located at the edge of the Rock/Alpine Garden. It is a Bristlecone Pine (Pinus Aristata) and it is native to a few areas in Colorado, Nevada, and Utah. This may be one of the most long-lived species in the world. There are specimens alive today that are over 5,000 years old and surviving at altitudes of 12,000 feet above sea level.

The team at Whistling Gardens remains dedicated to representing best practices in customer service and community leadership by providing a memorable agri-tourism guest experience!
