Using principles of organic gardening, the Ecology Garden endeavours to provide a relaxing natural environment for enjoyment and to help increase awareness of the need to protect the environment.

The Cobourg Ecology Garden is located close to downtown Cobourg at the end of Hibernia Street between Legion Village and the waterfront.


The Cobourg Ecology Gardeners endeavour to educate the public on the importance of our environment by increasing the awareness of the need to protect and maintain green space and native species while attempting to beautify our community to be enjoyed by all for generations to come.
