Domain Howard Park

The Domain Howard was created by the Howard family in the early 1920. The architecture of the buildings, fashionable for their era, demonstrates a respectable eclecticism and conveys a sense of nobility with their stonework exterior.

Their design is of British influence, reminiscent of the monumental style, popular in the early 20th century. Carl-Camirand Municipal greenhouses can be visited year-round, Monday through Friday.

There is an extremely rare flowering plant, “La belle de nuit, epiphylhem oxypetalum”. This plant was added to the greenhouse collection in the 1950s, in the days of Senator Charles B. Howard. The outdoor gardens are open to the public from May to October.

The park is home to an unusual tree-trunk sculpture garden. The artists created a number of giant works of art, that’s tree trunks that were left rooted in the ground but topped off after a wind storm.

An exposition of products manufactured by Sherbrooke area companies is open year-round in the Domain from Monday to Friday To visit the Domain Howard Park, coming from King Street West or from Portland Blvd. enter the park via either the Vimy Street or Ontario Street entrances.
