Experience spring at City's greenhouse

February 6, 2017 -

Spring is in full bloom at the City of Kingston's greenhouse and you can visit it on upcoming Sunday afternoons.

The greenhouse at 111 Norman Rogers Dr. (across from Centennial Public School) will be open for free visits from 2 to 4 p.m. on Feb. 12, 19 and 26 and March 5 and 11.

"The flowers and plants in the City's greenhouse are a sight for sore eyes.  We enjoy being able to offer Kingstonians these afternoons as an escape from grey, dull days of winter," says Troy Stubinski, operations manager, public works.

Spring bulbs and tropical plants are on display, including daffodils, orchids, tulips and hyacinths.

Greenhouse staff will be on hand to answer questions.
