Conifer gardens

Grand innovations have been put in place in order to celebrate the Jardin Scullion’s 30 years of existence. The visitors have access to one of the largest conifer gardens in the world with an impressive inventory of over 300 varieties and cultivars originating for the northern regions of the planet. These plants, adapted to the specific climatic conditions of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region, are the result of a major research project conducted by the organization since 2009. Guests are offered the possibility to rent electric carts to access this new development with an area of 8 hectares, the equivalent to 130 residential lots. There are 4.2 km of one-way trails that give access to this garden, including nearly a one km trail that is composed of floating wood and bog trail. Guests will have access to the south bank of the stream of the Harts by crossing the new arched bridge inspired by the gardens of England. This bridge, with a length of 35 meters and a weight of 520 tons, will become a major tourist attraction for the Jardin Scullion in the years to come.
