The Pitt Meadows Museum's Gardens

The garden and its produce is a very important aspect of our year-round family programming. It is also a beautiful addition to the landscape of Harris Road.


Since 1908, a garden to some extent has existed at the south side of the General Store. There is no documentation for the types of plants in the early garden. However, there are a few old trees and flowering shrubs that have survived today, such as the Yellow Transparent Apple and a large Quince. In the winter of 2009, the Pitt Meadows Garden Club stepped up to redevelop the site with heritage style plantings that would transform the garden to be more historically accurate. With ongoing maintenance by the museum staff, volunteers, and a gardens crew from the City of Pitt Meadows, the museum grounds now host a beautiful display of lilac, foxglove, lilies, hydrangeas, perennial geraniums and many other plants.

Children's Perennial Fruit and Herb Garden

On the north side of the building, visitors will find the children's perennial fruit garden. This compact bed explodes with seasonal favourites such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and rhubarb. Nearby is our herb and tea garden. This delicious little garden brings traditional flavour with sage, lemon balm, mints, oregano, fennel and one very spiky gooseberry tree. The garden is cared for and planted by local children, museum staff and volunteers.
