Wildflower Garden

Sunalta Wildflower Garden


Our Inner City Oasis. Sunalta is home to a completely volunteer-run Wildflower Garden. Located on the corner of 14th Ave and 16th ST, this lot was donated to Sunalta by a previous resident. 

Since then, our passionate and dedicated volunteers have worked tirelessly for decades to cultivate a gorgeous and flourishing wildflower garden in the heart of Sunalta. This space is home to a little free library and many plants that need love and care.

This is good place to meet some new neighbours while digging in the dirt.
