Welcome to the Fredericton Botanic Garden Association
In 1989, inspired by their common passion for botany and horticulture, a group of local residents formed the Fredericton Botanic Garden Association (FBGA), dedicated to establishing a Botanic Garden in Fredericton. One year later, in 1990, the City of Fredericton dedicated a property at the west end of Odell Park and the Fredericton Botanic Garden was born.
Since its establishment, the Garden has evolved through the joint efforts of the members of the FBGA and the City. In 1992 a Local Improvement Association was incorporated. It consolidates the interest of the parties in the creation and improvement of the site. It defines responsibilities of each group with respect to the Garden, its maintenance and growth.
A place where a wide variety of plants are cultivated for scientific, educational, and ornamental purposes, often including a library, a herbarium and greenhouses; an arboretum.
The Goals of the Fredericton Botanic Garden:
to provide a recreational opportunity to the public by means of walks, interpretive trails and beautiful displays of flowers and foliage
use tried and untried plant species and varieties so the public have a hands-on demonstration of plant hardiness
educate people of all ages to appreciate plants and to learn how plants coexist in natural settings
involve the community in the development of a new and important tourist attraction for the Fredericton area
