The City of Thunder Bay's Centennial Botanical Conservatory is a multi-functional facility - a community gathering space that is home a large variety of flowers, trees, tropical plants and cacti. It is also a production facility where the plants that fill city-owned flower pots and gardens throughout the summer are grown over the winter and spring.

Accessible to all and a great place to visit year round, the Conservatory was opened in 1967 by the Fort William Parks Board as a Centennial project, and it is a legacy to the citizens of Thunder Bay.
