Thunder Bay's Centennial Botanical Conservatory is a fascinating place to visit. Opened in 1967 by the Fort William Parks Board as a Centennial project, it is a legacy to the citizens of Thunder Bay.
The central and largest room in the Conservatory is the tropical house - a humid arboretum featuring exotic flowers, trees, shrubs and other plants from around the world in a year-round tropical setting.
The greenhouses adjacent to the Conservatory are used by staff to raise bedding plants and hanging floral displays for use in Thunder Bay Parks. For a spectacular season floral display, see Hillcrest Park.
