Etobicoke - Every Fall the Etobicoke Conservatory hosts The Chrysanthemum Show, where brilliant colors were on display, wonderful aromas were in the air and families came to enjoy the beautiful Chrysanthemum together.
The Centennial Park Conservatory is located within the boundaries of Etobicoke`s sprawling Centennial Park. The park is located in South-Central Etobicoke.
Centennial Park is a 500+ acre park that is bordered to the north by Eglinton Avenue and the south by Rathburn and is a beehive of activity both day and night with residents using its many attractions, all year round.
