Canberra's Oldest Garden Centre with a Fresh Look
Willow Park Nursery is owned and operated by a Canberra family with a business history in the Canberra region dating back to the 1930’s . At the time Willow Park was a market flower nursery used for growing cut gladioli and daffodils. The original homestead was built in 1932 and still stands in the front grounds among the shade of the established trees and gardens including some of the oldest trees in Canberra today.
Willow Park Nursery is arguably Canberra’s oldest nursery and retail garden centre. Willow Park Nursery has been the property’s trading name since the 1940’s, where as local history tells it, residents would meet in the sunroom of the homestead during World War 2 to discuss the potential threat of Japanese bombing runs in the area due to the close proximity to the Royal Military College Duntroon site.

The plant nursery had a great range of garden plants. The parking was easy. There were hundreds of plants all helpfully placed in the appropriate categories. The staff were friendly and helpful. The condition of the plant I bought was excellent. This a great place to visit and to choose your plants.
Willow Park has always been our go to, but since the new management has taken over it is sooo much better. It is cleaner, the service is fantastic and friendly and the range and prices really are second to none. A staff member mentioned they're planning a Cafe and playground- absolutely can't wait!
I had the previous reviews but Willow Park Nursery is under new management So my experience was fantastic. Beautiful layout. Great quality plants and enormous variety. Staff were very helpful and even offered to carry the dwarf nectarine to the car for me.
