About Regina Floral Conservatory, Saskatchewan, Canada
Opened during 1950’s by the City of Regina, the conservatory consisted of three small greenhouses. These greenhouses housed plants used to beautify the city and one of them was later opened for public enjoyment.
In 1999, the City of Regina partnered with the Regina Garden Associates to maintain the floral displays and to organize various events at the greenhouse. Later in 2002, the greenhouse was renamed as the Regina Floral Conservatory.
