Royal Botanical Gardens - Burlington: "ZimSculpt" Exhibit for One or Four at Royal Botanical Gardens (Up to 62% Off)

With the proper care, a garden can turn into anything from a lush jungle to a beautiful birthing nest for a pregnant dove. Witness impressive growth with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $6 for one admission to the ZimSculpt exhibit (a $13 value)
  • $20 for four admissions to the ZimSculpt exhibit (a $52 value)

Zimbabwean artists Patrick Sephani and Passmore Mupindiko sculpt more than 300 works by hand from stones quarried from the 500-kilometre ridge of Zimbabwe's The Great Dyke. Using hammers, chisels, and rasps, they craft art that depicts their culture as well as alluring abstract work. The exhibit runs from Saturday, August 25, to Monday, October 8.

Royal Botanical Gardens

Littered with billboards and dilapidated shacks, the abandoned 6-acre gravel pit looked like the last place you'd want to plant a garden. But from 1930 to 1931, the Royal Botanical Gardens transformed the area by arranging weathered limestone rocks from nearby quarries into linked paths and staircases winding around ponds and waterfalls. Since then, the 2,700-acre nonprofit facility has continued to display approximately 40,000 plants and 50 living plant collections in its five gardens.

The property also hosts three nature sanctuaries. The largest, Cootes Paradise, encompasses 16 creeks and a 320-hectacre river-mouth marsh on more than 600 hectares of land. Visitors can explore stream crossings or check out the gardens from above on 31 scenic trails that range across more than 21 kilometres with more than 20 lookouts. After long expeditions, visitors can make their way to the three onsite restaurants, browse gardening tools in the shop, or attend one of the garden's many monthly events.

I loved it, and was happy for the Groupon to let me experience it for the first time. I now walk the pay-to-park trails often, and will save towards a regular membership. :)
