The Botanical Gardens of Silver Springs
were created and continue to be maintained
by community volunteers.

Since the Gardens and forest areas are located
in a City of Calgary park,
are open to the general public
just like all other city parks.


There is no admission fee but we do appreciate
your support through donations
and letters of appreciation.



Our Facebook page is up and running -
thanks to volunteer and Gardens enthusiast
Kelly Heintz!

       Spring Ahead

With Spring just around the corner (or maybe several corners) we are now starting to plan for the new season.

Firstly, we will be having an Open House event to celebrate the expansion of the Rose Garden.

It will now contain a much larger variety of roses complete with a walk-through pathway for better viewing. Also, each rose bush will have a sign containing all botanical identification.


Secondly, we will also be celebrating the revision of the Shakespeare Garden with newly completed brick pathway leading throughout the garden. Many fruit trees, flowering shrubs, and various plants have been added to create this spectacular and very unique garden space.

This garden will also be a "must see" early in the season with fruit trees and Spring bulbs (daffodils, blue poppies) coming into bloom to officially mark the arrival of Spring!!


All information regarding the Open House for these two combined mid-summer events will be posted later on the website.

We have also reserved a display table at the Calgary Horticultural Society Garden Show which will be held the weekend of April 11th and 12th at Spruce Meadows. This is an opportunity to learn more about our gardens and how this 100% volunteer project has ‘blossomed’ over the past eight years.
