Les Jardins de Métis/Reford Gardens are opening the Gardens to the public for the 8th annual special winter visit on Saturday, March 10 and Sunday, March 11 from 12 noon to 4 pm. The first event of the year at the Reford Gardens, Winter Wonderland allows visitors to see behind the cedar hedges and discover the beauty of the gardens in winter. Trails will be marked and a circuit identified for easy snowshoeing. A slightly longer and sportier trail will lead to the mouth of the Mitis River. With the help of the Metis Beach School, snowshoes will be available free of charge (quantities are limited). Heritage Lower St. Lawrence is again partnering with Winter Wonderland as part of its mandate to promote healthy practices for the region’s residents, Francophone and Anglophone, and to encourage outdoor family activities.
