Jardin de Metis – Reford Gardens

In the summer of 1926, Elsie Reford (1872-1967) began converting her fishing camp on the Métis River into gardens. Located on the northern part of the Gaspé Peninsula, these are the northernmost gardens in eastern North America. Known as Les Jardins de Métis or The Reford Gardens, they were opened to the public in 1962. Few gardens have been created in such difficult weather conditions.
