Former Veevers Estate Doors Open Hamilton

Former Veevers Estate

This garden is a remnant of the 80 hectares (200 acres) cleared by the Loyalist Thatcher family in the late 18th century. Come and explore pesticide-free community gardens, native species, pollinator gardens and more. View solar- and wind-energy generation, permeable path options and a green roof. And examine the new Chevrolet Volt at the electric vehicle charging station.
