The Royal Botanical Gardens, located near Burlington, Ontario on the Niagara Escarpment around the western tip of Lake Ontario, opened in 1932 and now covers 2,700 acres with some 9,000 different plant species and cultivars displayed in four major garden areas and an arboretum. It also has 18 miles of walking trails, including a Marsh Trail through one of the continent’s largest wetland restoration projects. The Gardens are a popular wedding site. On the Saturday in June when I visited there were at least a half dozen weddings taking place simultaneously in different areas.
