Bouquets to just a few of our many friends and volunteers

It would be an understatement to say that the Botanical Gardens in Silver Springs are anything but spectacular!

It should be also recognized that the ongoing continuing efforts of a small group of dedicated volunteers have made the long term success of this garden project possible.


With not much more than thirty active volunteers, we have created the largest and most unique gardens in all of Calgary.

Our thanks go out to each and every one of our regular volunteers who toil happily  at planting and watering and weeding and pruning and proving that flowers can brighten one's day and make the community a better and more beautiful place for all.

Thank you Church of Latter-Day Saints volunteers

We are so grateful for the continuing support and efforts of our great neighbours - members of the Church of Latter-Day Saints.

Elders Church, Owen, Burns and Ritter
from Idaho, Utah, Colorado and Knoxville.


A number of young people - Elders on a Mission - continue to do so much for us - from weeding to raking to spreading mulch and ... the list goes on.

If you see any really young men and women working in the gardens, be sure to stop and say howdy and thank you!


  Thanks to all the unknown heroes and secret volunteers

Besides our dedicated core of hard-working volunteers, there are a number of other people who should also be acknowledged for contributing to the quality of the gardens.

Friendly neighbour cutting the grass

Special thanks also to those who stop and pick up garbage that occasionally makes its way into the area.

We are also be grateful to the individuals who pick up after their dogs and a special thanks to those who pick up other people's doggie-doo.
Nothing can ruin a pleasant walk through the gardens faster than stepping into Rover's number two.

A sincere thank you to all who have in their own way contributed to the beauty of the Gardens.
