Centennial celebration for Summerland Ornamental Gardens

July 12, 2016 – Kelowna Capital News

This weekend, there is a big celebration to mark the 100th anniversary of the opening of Summerland Ornamental Gardens.

I’m excited to be participating in the celebrations as a tour guide in the xeriscape garden.

Created in 1991, it was the first xeriscape demonstration garden in Canada, and is still the largest.

The Ornamental Gardens have been a special place to me all my life.

In the 1950s, my grandmother took us there for many family picnics.

Granny would always take a walk through the gardens with her friend the superintendent.
