The Danish waves of immigration were largely motivated by Canada’s need for experienced farmers and skilled tradespeople. The museum pays homage to Denmark’s influence on the cultivation of the Canadian landscape with over 13 acres of impressive green space.
Rich, black loam farmland surrounds the virgin parkland forest, home to numerous indigenous tree species and wild flowers. Linden trees and Hawthorn surround the north section of the museum grounds. The buildings and gardens have been designed to blend naturally into this beautiful setting.
Small rock walls differentiate green space from the gardens with unique curvatures found around the perimeter, in the tradition of authentic Danish gardens.
Our outdoor space and walking trails provide visitors with a sublime escape, and a chance to reconnect with nature. Keep an eye out for birds and deer! They love our gardens as much as you will.
