Canada’s Garden Route

Canada’s 150th in Welland Committee is proud to announce their successful application to receive a 150th Celebration Garden.  The Committee submitted an application to the nationwide contest on why Welland should be selected to receive this commerative 150th Celebration Garden.  Cities were selected from British Columbia to the Yukon and Welland, Ontario is proud to be one of the 150 locations along Canada’s Garden Route.  500 White Hakuun and 500 Red Impression tulip bulbs will be planted at the Welland Farmers Market in a “150th Celebration Garden Planting Ceremony” on Saturday, November 5th, 2016 at 10:00 am. 

The tulip is an international symbol of friendship and an enduring symbol of our national ethos of kindness and hospitality. The 150th Celebration Gardens are a terrific way to say "Happy Birthday" to Canada. 

Over 400 applications were submitted to the Canadian Garden Council, the organization behind the 150th Celebration Garden program. The tulip bulbs themselves were donated by Vesey's Bulbs of PEI. The Welland garden along with the 149 other gardens across the country will be symbolically linked to a Flagship 150th Celebration Garden Promenade, consisting of 25,000 tulips also donated by Vesey's. This garden will be planted this fall and bloom next spring adjacent to Niagara Falls. 

The garden will be featured on Canada's Garden Route. To learn more visit
