Welcome to the Kilborn Allotment Gardens. The gardens are operated by the City of Ottawa, Parks and Recreation Branch, and administered through the Dempsey Community Centre, 1895 Russell Road.

The Allotment Gardens are located on Kilborn Avenue and are bordered by Pleasant Park to the north, Delmar Drive to the west, and Haig Drive to the east. Limited parking is available at the Kilborn and Pleasant Park entrances.

The gardening season runs from May 11, 2010 to October 11, 2010, weather permitting. Gardening hours are from 7:00h to 19:00h.

Each plot is considered seasonal. Returning gardeners are provided an opportunity to renew plots prior to the plots becoming available to the general public. Renewals must be completed by February 28, 2010. Efforts are made to rent the same plot(s) to returning gardeners, however, the City reserves the right to close plots and may require gardeners to change location from time to time. Gardeners are not absolutely guaranteed to have their same plot(s) every year.

The approximate garden plot size is 20' x 50' (1000 square feet).

There are a limited number of tool sheds for rent at the Kilborn and Pleasant Park entrances. Gardener-provided padlocks and shed contents must be removed at the conclusion of each season. Water taps are available on site for gardener convenience.
