Aspen Crossing Station Greenhouse

Mossleigh, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The Station Gift Shop is actually a replica of an early 1900’s, Standard No. 5 CPR train station. It may be strange to some to combine trains and horticulture, but gardens helped the railway settle western Canada. Aspen Crossing first opened the station as a retail garden centre in 2004. The gift store was added to the existing business in 2006. The garden centre stocks beautiful annuals, premium hanging baskets and containers. Aspen Crossing is well known for their Mother’s Day 2 for 1 hanging baskets over the years!
