Paradise in the Prairies: University of Alberta Botanic Garden and the new Aga Khan garden. 30+ Image tourEvery summer my mission is to find hidden gems in unlikely places in this magnificent landscape I call home. Just outside of Edmonton, where the Boreal forest and the Prairies meet in Devon Alberta, a paradise quietly awaits 70 000 visitors each year. The University of Alberta Botanic Garden (formerly known as Devonian Garden) is part of the Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences and used as a the university’s plant collection, research and education facility and is open to the public for viewing during the summer months. Established in 1959, this 97 acre forest garden holds several themed displays that we will walk thru starting with the newly opened Aga Khan garden.
