We had the great privilege of visiting the Irving Arboretum in Bouctouche, NB. New Brunswick tycoon J.D. Irving (oil refinery, logging, paper mill) is the patron of the gardens and forest.
Walking paths take visitors through forests planted with 5000 varieties of trees and lovely fields with flower gardens that rival Butchart Gardens in BC.
Also located in the public park is the non-denominational Irving Memorial Chapel. The woodwork and stained glass is marvellous.
