Frances Bouma and George Pullen - 194273 Amaranth E. Luther Town Line
Large landscape boulders frame beautiful rockeries and gardens, while the long fence row is a showcase for perennials and shrubs. A gorgeous country property!

Kathy Muliss and Rick Taylor - 67 Amaranth St. E.
A perennial favourite, these gardens always have new and unusual plant material. Butterflies, birds, bees, frogs, squirrels and goldfish all make their home here!

Old Firehall Garden - Mill Street E.
Once the site of the Grand Valley Fire Department, this location now has benches and gardens situated on the banks of the Grand River. A great place to relax and enjoy a picnic!

Stone Wall Municipal Garden – corner of Emma Street and Main Street (Cty Rd 25)
Grand Valley's latest gardens are an impressive welcome to the village, with a curved dry stone wall, topped with a sedum ground cover. Grasses, perennials and shrubs are artfully arranged to show off the beautiful structure.
