Established in 2009, as an outcome of the inaugural Garden Tourism Conference and supported by Landscape Ontario Horticultural Trades Association, the Ontario Garden Tourism Coalition was formed in order to develop Ontario’s Garden Experience and to promote it as part of Ontario’s tourism experience. This is similar to the path that Ontario’s wine and culinary industries took some years ago with the formation of the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance.

Garden Tourism is now recognized as a significant sector of the province, and the country’s, vast tourism offering.

It is the intention of the Ontario Garden Tourism Coalition that this website contain the most comprehensive listing of garden destinations in the province so that visitors – whether they come from around the corner or from across the world – wanting to visit the magnificent gardens and garden experiences of Ontario can find all of them in one easy to navigate website.

Membership in the Coalition is open to:
  • Public, private, historical, community and botanical gardens and arboreta
  • Communities in Bloom locations
  • Cities, towns and regions that consider themselves garden destinations
  • Municipal parks departments
  • Destination garden centres
  • Garden trails and tours
  • Garden-focused festivals and events
  • Affiliate organizations such as Master Gardeners and Ontario Horticultural
  • Association chapters etc
