The University of Alberta Devonian Botanic Garden, established in 1959, is a stunning 190-acre property made up of manicured gardens, mixed woodland vegetation and an extensive nature trail system. Highlights of the garden include the beautiful Kurimoto Japanese Garden, butterfly and cactus showhouses, ornamental flower gardens, alpine gardens, herb, sensory and healing gardens, and more.

Research is one of three key activities at the Devonian Botanic Garden. Along with public education and the showgardens, research at the garden is aimed at promoting and sharing the discovery and knowledge of plants.
