4150 Riverwood Park Lane
The event highlights the amazing Riverwood Park- a unique 60- hectare nature park on the banks of the historic Credit River.
Riverwood has a rich geological history and on its site is beautiful Chappell house, a stone heritage home built in the Arts & Crafts architectural style that is celebrating its 100th anniversary.
The happenings at the park include guided tours of the MacEwan Terrace Gardens, the Enabling Garden, and the gardens around Chappell House. A speaker will talk about the history of Chappell House. Visitors are welcome to walk any of the trails and enjoy the views of the Credit River, and a bounty of other wildlife and other wildflowers.
An artisan marketplace, food vendors, exhibitors, children’s activities, and speakers providing gardening advice are some of the festival events.
Our featured speaker will be Steven Biggs who will talk on “Edibles in the Urban Landscape” and his daughter Emma will talk to children about how they can plant and grow vegetables.
