A national botanical garden has been a dream for Ottawa since at least 1887. But this time around, it’s a dream that will become a reality, vows a group that aims to see ground broken on the Central Experimental Farm next year.

The goal: a garden of international caliber on 34 acres bounded by Prince of Wales Drive and the Rideau Canal, with a grand opening in 2019.
