Soaking Up Sun at the Regina Floral Conservatory

I think I speak for a lot of Regina parents when I say – enough with the snow already! Doesn’t it seem like this winter season has been dragging on for way too long? Even my husband, who loves winter sports, is begging for all of the snow to melt.

Looking to escape the snow but not able to hop on a plane & fly to a warm destination? I have a suggestion for you – the Regina Floral Conservatory! The sun shines in to create a warm shelter from the cold outdoors and the smell of the flowers helps you to remember what spring is really like.

The Regina Floral Conservatory is run by The Regina Garden Association – a volunteer, non-profit organization. From September to mid-June, the daily hours are 1:00pm -4:30pm. Entry to the conservatory is free but charitable donations are greatly appreciated. Anytime we’ve been there, the people who greet us couldn’t be any sweeter! They love having guests (especially the little ones!) and they are happy to show you around and tell you about the different plants and flowers.

If you want to take spring photos, the Regina Floral Conservatory is the perfect place to take them! It doesn’t look like Regina will be snow-free for quite a few weeks so the Regina Floral Conservatory is a great place to go in your best Easter outfits for family photos.

During our last visit, they were setting up for a St. Patrick’s Day buffet. It looks like the perfect location for a bridal shower, baby shower or even a fun tea party for your little ones. Did you know that you can even hold your wedding ceremony there?

There are so many ways to enjoy family fun at the Regina Floral Conservatory.

You can try many of the organized activities and events such as:

  • Lil’ Gardeners Club (for ages birth – 5 years) – check their website for information on the activities and how you can register
  • Special Tea Parties – there is a schedule available on their website
  • Family Day Events – usually held on Sundays, pre-registration required, check their website for a schedule (next event will be on Sunday, April 21st)

You can also plan your own special activities such as:

  • family photo session
  • learning about the different plants and flowers
  • packing a picnic lunch and enjoying it in the sunny gazebo

My son’s favourite part is the little pond. He was determined to go swimming in it!

Have you been to the Regina Floral Conservatory? Have you attended any of their special events or have you planned your own special events there?
