The Jardins de Métis, also known in English as the Reford Gardens, is an English-style garden located at Grand-Métis, Quebec. Originally private, the gardens were opened to the public in 1962. The gardens were designed a Canadian National Historic Site in 1995 and as a Quebec heritage site by the Ministry of Culture and Communications of Quebec in 2013.
The property covers about 18 hectares . The gardens contain approximately 3,000 plant varieties. Thanks to its location near the confluence of the St. Lawrence and Mitis Rivers, the site has a favourable microclimate which allows plants to grow here that are found nowhere else in Canada.
