Alberta has declared a state of public health emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As recommended by health officials, if you choose to participate in events outside of your home, please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including proper physical distancing, mask-wearing, and frequent handwashing. If you are sick, please stay home.

A beautiful, massive botanical garden and a picnic at twilight? This dreamy experience is now a reality at a botanic garden just outside of Edmonton.

The Twilight Picnic Experience at the University of Alberta’s Botanic Garden gives guests admission to the sprawling 240-acre property in Parkland County, just 15 minutes southwest of Edmonton.

Along with admission there is live entertainment, sparkling water and a gourmet meal box from Partake restaurant.

The picnic boxes are filled with locally sourced charcuterie, cheeses, fruits, breads, vegetables, sweet treats and are adorned with fresh edible flowers.
