Les Jardins de Doris have as their mission to help youth and adults who have difficulty fitting into society. The gardens are located on a remarkable site along the Matane River, 1.5 km from the centre of Matane and just 45 minutes from Les Jardins de Métis. 

Les Jardins de Doris await you and will offer you the best floral pageant imaginable! 

Families and groups will find a leisurely ambiance and a pristine environment. Rest and tranquillity mix harmoniously with the landscape of this little corner of paradise. Offer yourself a few unforgettable moments. Enjoy the songs of birds and dive into the magnificent fragrances that are found in this oasis of peace.

When you visit, you will find yourself in a giant game of chess, a sundial that is 30 feet in diameter, an observation tower for bird lovers, a collection of miniature boats, a magnificent exhibition of bonsais and a Zen garden. On top of this, children will particularly enjoy the House for Three Little Pigs, Hansel and Gretel’s cottage as well as Snow White’s home – fun for everyone!

Throughout the years, Les Jardins de Doris has continued to develop by adding a demonstration vegetable garden, transforming a country school house into an exhibition venue, initiating a project to compost using worms and growing vegetables in a greenhouse on an impressive scale.
