Program Description

We are pleased to announce that our popular and fun Chinese New Year programs are taking place this year! 

Our Garden is currently closed to the public but we will be open for school groups in 2021. With Covid safety protocols in mind, spots will be limited this year with adequate time in between groups for sanitization.

CNY group bookings will be available from February 1st to February 26th 2021.

Check back here or on our website in mid-December for more details. 

Not able to visit us in-person? Check these other options out:

  • Join us in your classroom! CNY Education Kits will be available to buy. These kits will include exclusive online access to teaching plans, photocopiable material and more so you can recreate our program in your own school. The kits will also include the materials for each student to make a Chinese New Year craft.
  • Join us online! Our website will soon have some free Chinese New Year learning activites available.

We look forward to celebrating New Year with you - whether online or in person!

    Our trips are in-person and the health, safety and well-being of our visitors, employees, volunteers and our extended community is always our top priority. We continue to be guided by the advice of local, provincial and national public health officials and will make decisions as needed moving forward.  For everyone's safety, for the time being: - We will only be admitting one class of students plus chaperones at a time.  - All classes/programs will be led by facilitators. We are sorry that we cannot accomodate self-guided class visits at this time. - Classes will be split into smaller groups to facilitate physical distancing in the Garden - We recommend all visitors to the Garden wear a mask. Masks are available at Visitor Services upon request. - Hand sanitizer is available at the front entrance and at various points throughout the Garden - Please don't hesitate to speak to us about any special needs or concerns you or your group may have. As a non-profit organization, the Garden is grateful for your continued support and understanding.
