The George Pegg Botanic Garden is a 12 acre portion of the original Pegg family farmstead that was established in 1913. Young George developed a keen interest in plants and birds, which continued into his adulthood. His work was a valuable contribution to the record of Alberta’s native plants. George’s original garden of mature trees and ornamental perennials is the centrepiece of this site. As a Provincial Historic Resource, Pegg Garden preserves many of the original buildings- reminding us of the pioneers who established this agricultural community.
