The moment you enter the Aquatopia Atrium, you are transported into what seems like another world. Tropical plants scent the air with fragrant, vibrant flowers, and lush foliage. It feels clean, refreshing, and makes one feel completely alive! A gorgeous living wall forms an inviting backdrop as you approach our main reception desk, while the sounds of tumbling water falls seduce you further into our heavenly sanctum. Explore a little further to the centre of the Atrium where the space opens up to our feature water gardens including a koi-filled ecosystem pond, a basalt column fountainscape, and a lovely pondless waterfall and stream. Exotic plants from every corner of the world flourish and completely surround you in this verdant environment, while soaring glass ceilings overhead allow the warm sunshine to stream in and warm your soul while you relax on the pond side deck.
The Aquatopia Atrium is also the dining space for Aquatopia Bistro, a unique private culinary experience where you can host intimate dinners & luncheons, small receptions, cocktail parties & other celebrations. Aquatopia Bistro combines the service style and selection of a restaurant, in a gorgeous tropical atmosphere unlike any other
in Canada - all at a reasonable price. For more information contact our events department at 613-225-7663 ext 2.
Aquatopia is open to the general public during our regular garden centre hours: Tuesday through Friday from 8am to 4pm, and Saturday from 8am to 1pm, and closed Sunday & Monday. Admission is free.
