One of the finest pleasures of a visit to Lougheed House is a stroll through the formal ‘Beaulieu Gardens.’ The Lougheeds were our community’s horticultural leaders, often winning Calgary Horticultural Society 1st prizes for many garden and lawn entries between 1908 – 1914.
Today our team of 25 passionate and knowledgeable volunteer gardeners plan, plant, nurture and harvest a wide array of flowers, fruits and vegetables that are used in the regional seasonal cuisine served at The Restaurant on site. Our gardens are one of Calgary’s largest inner city sanctuaries of peace and nature, and are free to enjoy, seven days a week. There is grass for picnics and dog frolics (we are an “official” on-leash dog park), benches for sitting and tranquility and colour all around. Come, enjoy!
