The Gardens of Hope
Located in the heart of New Glasgow, Prince Edward Island, the Gardens of Hope are 12 acres of natural splendour shaped from the hills and shoreline along the River Clyde. The gardens contain an assortment of pathways, outlooks and structures designed to capture the Island’s natural artistry, serenity and glorious country views. This awe-inspiring setting provides a wonderful opportunity for individuals to reflect and rejuvenate their spirit and souls in an environment of natural harmony and tranquility.
Established in 2005, the Gardens of Hope is spread over 12 acres of awe-inspiring natural beauty, the likes of which New Glasgow is so well-known for. With the River Clyde serving as a scenic backdrop, the Gardens have some of nature’s most beautiful elements for visitors to enjoy and receive solace from. There are more than 400 different plants and flowers in the Gardens, making each month’s blooming something to look forward to as the colours come to life. In the orchard, apple blossoms and cherry blossoms offer a delicate sense of reflection, and the sea of blue irises by the riverbank can only be described as relaxing. A section called Eagle’s View is one of several seating areas in the Garden, and it is not uncommon for visitors to see an eagle or two taking flight. Besides eagles and Canada geese, the Gardens are home to many more birds. Visiting bird watchers have been known to have been pleasantly surprised by the wide variety they come across in the Gardens.
You are invited to visit this unique garden sanctuary, enjoy some of the most spectacular views on Prince Edward Island and let the sights and sounds of nature be sources of peace, refreshment and inspiration.
Within the Gardens of Hope, a Respite Cottage has been built as a place of rest for either individuals, families, or caregivers coping with serious life threatening illnesses. It is also made available to caregivers and those who are ministering to others who themselves are experiencing compassion fatigue. The Gardens of Hope Respite Cottage is available at no cost for those who find themselves in need.
