MacGregor has a nice mix of edible, native and decorative plants throughout the park. Strawberries line the front garden beds, along with a fruit tree grove along the hedges. Concrete blockers, along the NW corner were reclaimed in 2007 and carry a variety of herbs, native species and medicinal plants.

The drop-in garden club helps maintain these gardens, and is open to everyone. If you are interested and would like to be on our weekly newsletter mailout please contact macgregorparkstaff@gmail.com . Weekly we will be building garden beds, seed, weeding, pruning, watering and anything that needs doing in the gardens. Feel free to drop in during garden times, to help, share some tips, new plant and garden ideas with staff that are on hand.
