We're Really Digging Those Gardens : Jardins Gamelin

It’s time to discover even more gardens… in a much more urban setting this time! The 5th season of the Jardins Gamelin starts right at the end of May, and we’ll make sure not to miss it! Come enjoy a nice terrace, good music, a hyped crowd and free activities. We’ll also make a stop at the beautiful BAnQ (library) and visit the Village, which you might know for its multicolor garlands.
