Centennial Botanical Conservatory Doors Open Thunder Bay

Centennial Botanical Conservatory

Built by the Fort William Parks Board in honour of Canada’s centennial, construction of this 18-tonne structure began in 1965. In November 1967, this oasis opened as one of only 10 conservatories in the country. The 1,096-square-metre (11,800-square-foot) viewing area features cascading waterfalls, pools and winding pathways among an extensive display of exotic flowers, plants and fruit-bearing trees.
