Riverside Park Pollinator Gardens


709 Woolwich Street. These three gardens are located in Riverside Park along the trail that runs along the north side of the river.

About the gardens

  • These gardens create pollinator habitat from older existing shrub gardens. Native and drought-tolerant plants were chosen to add visual appeal for the public walking on the nearby trail and food and shelter for pollinators.
  • Interpretive signage at each of the gardens draws attention to pollinator related topics.
  • You can learn about topics ranging from types of native bees to how to create your own pollinator friendly garden.
  • City staff, Pollination Guelph and volunteers maintain the garden.

Get involved

These gardens were designed to provide examples of how to design gardens that have low water requirements, low maintenance landscape and also provide habitat for wildlife to inspire residents to create similar gardens at home. Come check them out and get inspired!

Volunteers are always welcome to help with garden maintenance. To volunteer contact [email protected].
