Long Description:
The Floral Showhouse, in Niagara Falls, is a free attraction that is open daily year-round. Off to the side of the buildings and greenhouse is this little fragrance garden. There is a fountain in the centre of this garden and there are plantings around the fountain and on the bordering raised garden walls. You can stop by the fragrance garden at any time because it is not enclosed with a fence or in a building, but I believe it would be seasonal with not much to see in the winter months.

There are signs for the different plantings both in English and in Braille. The nearby plaque, also in English and in Braille, is from the Niagara Parks Commission and it says:

"During the Commission's Centennial year, this fragrance garden was dedicated for the educational enjoyment of the public. Plants with unusual texture, aromatic foliage, fragrant flowers and taste have been used."

Here is the information for the nearby Floral Showhouse -

Floral Showhouse Location: 7145 Niagara Parkway, Niagara Falls, Ontario, just 500 meters (½ mile) south of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Paid Parking is available.
