Tree Planting Ceremony at the Gardens of Pillar and Post
June 10, 2019
The property across the street from Pillar & Post, owned by Vintage Hotels, planted it's first tree to signify the beginning of the installation of a six-acre botanical garden.
What used to be a C&C Yacht club has now been torn down and will soon contain 342 trees, 21,000 shrubs and perennials within the next couple months.
In 2015 Seferian Design Group was retained by Vintage Hotels to design the garden and event space at the Pillar and Post in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The ‘Gardens’ will be located directly south of the current inn and spa and will be bordered by John Street, Regent Street, Anne Street, and King Street.
Our landscape architectural team, worked in conjunction with the architect, engineer, lighting and acoustical consultant to design the Monet-inspired garden space. The space will include paved pathways, lily ponds complete with a pedestrian bridge, lawn spaces for events, a new event building, vegetable gardens, water features that will double as a skating rink, site amenities and furnishings, and lighting. The new space will also host the Vintage Hotel offices and will include a decorative stone wall around the park to allow for public and private access during events. Regent Street will also be closed to traffic and will be retrofitted with granite cobble.
