A garden of earthly delights -
Calgary's only Shakespeare Garden


According to the many visitors to the Botanical Gardens of Silver Springs, one of their favorite areas is the Shakespeare Garden.

It is hard to believe that just a few years ago, the area looked like this


Since then, many dramatic improvements have been made.

There are now three vine clustered arbours, a brick semi-circular path, a Herb and Vegetable garden and a bounteous cornucopia of annuals, perennials and fruit trees.

This is what the area looks like now!







Be sure to check out the many photos of the Shakespeare Garden in the Virtual Tour.

Below are some more recent spectacular photos of the area taken

Have you checked out the Shakespeare Garden recently?

 If not, you should do so soon!

The new brick path has been laid, new quotation signs have been placed and many new Shakespeare related flowers, bushes, trees and herbs have been planted.

The bard would be pleased!
