“Amazing that our Peony Festival has again earned recognition as a top Ontario event,” said Councillor Bob Chapman, Chair of the Community Services Committee. “I encourage people to visit this year’s Festival on June 13th and 14th and enjoy our beautiful gardens.”

Hosted by the City, this free event displays 300 types of peonies in the gardens and attracts over 4,000 visitors. In addition, hundreds of peony blooms are displayed in Children’s Arena for the annual Canadian Peony Society – Ontario Region’s judged Peony Show.
