Parklane Nurseries “rewilds” Canada Blooms

March 11, 2014  By Canadian Garden Centre & Nursery

Mar. 11, 2014, Toronto — Parklane Nurseries has partnered with the Ontario Water Centre to promote the importance of water management at this year's Canada Blooms festival.

Parklane, a veteran feature garden builder at Canada Blooms, has created a garden that compares two distinct spaces. In one space people dominate nature. In the other, visitors see themselves as part of nature. The garden offers a space to enjoy a chat sitting among 16,000 pine trees, plus opportunities to relax and be entertained in a "glamping yurt" and meander through a day lit stream, learning about the journey of water through a garden.

The Ontario Water Centre is evolving as clusters of centres and activities link to make the entire Lake Simcoe watershed a "living laboratory." One of these initiatives is the "rewilding" of shoreline revitalization projects promoting the idea of people and nature developing a relationship to revitalize outdoor spaces in a way that benefits the health and well-being of both.


Parklane has been creating feature gardens for Canada Blooms since the festival's inception 18 years ago.

This year's Canada Blooms festival runs March 14 to 23 at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto. For more information, visit
