Visit Abbey Gardens

Abbey Gardens is a not-for profit charity and our big dream is to transform a spent gravel pit (300 acres) into a green space that provides economic and recreational opportunities for our community. Our gardens, hiking trails, Food Hub, educational displays and local business partners (including a craft brewery) are all located on site in the beautiful Haliburton Highlands, Ontario overlooking Grass Lake.  Everything we do helps further our mission to create opportunities to learn about living more sustainably. Tour the gardens, visit our heritage breed ponies and chickens, shop for local food at the Food Hub, enjoy lunch on our new restaurant patio or participate in one of our programming options throughout the year.
