Toronto, ON - March 13, 2017

In celebration of Canada’s sesquicentennial, the Canadian Garden Council in collaboration with the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association, announced the 150 gardens and garden experiences awarded the ‘Canada 150 Garden Experience’ designation – highlighting them as 150 gardens ways to celebrate Canada’s birthday year.

Rideau Woodland Ramble is a Garden Centre and Display Gardens situated on 7 acres of woodland near Merrickville Ontario. Its mission is “to capture the imagination of gardeners and collectors”, in a woodland setting, showcasing and selling rare and unusual Hostas, Grasses, Conifers, Magnolias, and a range of shrubs, trees and perennials.

The Ramble is just 30 minutes south of Ottawa and is proud to be a member of the Burritt’s Rapids, Merrickville and Kemptville (North Grenville) communities, and near the World Heritage site of the Rideau Canal System.

The Ramble was initiated in 1999 with initial site clearing after the ice storm of 1998. The majority of infrastructure was created in 2000, with the Centre opening in the fall of that year. Dave Dunn and Rob Caron were extremely honored and proud to have received the Canadian Garden Council 2015 Destination Garden Centre of the Year Award at the North American Garden Tourism Conference held in Toronto on March 17 2015.
