Garden Experience Guide

Reader Rock Garden, City of Calgary Park

Reader Rock Garden is an Edwardian era Arts and Crafts style rockery. Located steps from historic Union Cemetery and the Calgary Stampede grounds at 325 – 25th Avenue S.E., this three-acre garden consists of a matrix of rock paths, steps and walls that form numerous planting beds and a variety of microclimates and garden areas. The Garden dates from 1913 and was historically used as a private residence for influential Parks Superintendant, William Roland Reader. The reconstructed house features a café, catering and classroom space. Take in the city skyline or enjoy a leisurely walk at this unique botanical treasure.
