The Trochu Arboretum & Gardens is a wonderful stop to stretch your legs. They have numerous roses, trees, herbs and flowers to see. Some are tagged with the names to help you identify them. They have a bathroom available at the time we visited. I recommend this as a stopover.

We made a special trip here en route to Rosebud after reading other reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! The gardens were lovely and we enjoyed the best seafood melt ever at the Sweetgrass Cafe. I highly recommend a lunch stop if you are in the area. We are coming back from Calgary with more friends!

We stopped by on a road trip between two towns and were pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately it was raining but the gardens were still beautiful. There is a walking path and lots of beautiful flowers and plants to see.

Wonderful area, 5 acres, of gardens and trees, and there is a wonderful café located there as well. Beautiful area to visit in winter with all the outdoor Christmas lights and displays.

A lovely, shady stroll through a variety of trees, flowers and shrubs. Very beautiful, and well tended. Also quite informative. Would be a great spot for a wedding!
