What to do at OWGF


Brought to you by The Pond Clinic, and hosted at the NEW Aquatopia Conservatory, experience a day celebrating the beauty of water gardens! Join us for a pond tour and catered waterside reception in the region’s ONLY water garden conservatory.

Guests will receive access to our Pond Tour Map, where they can visit a half-dozen stunning water gardens around the west end of Ottawa. Features include tumbling pondless waterfalls, massive swimming ponds and mid-sized eco-ponds with blooming lilies and thriving koi fish. Pond owners will be available from 10:00am to 2:00pm on Saturday July 9, for your questions, comments and compliments!

For those of you who prefer to skip the driving and maximize your viewing, Aquatopia has a shuttle service leaving Aquatopia Conservatory for the Pond Tour destinations, at 10:00am and 11:30am.
