Grey Nuns garden

The back garden of the Grey Nuns Residence on Concordia’s Sir George Williams Campus has reopened to the university community, providing a downtown urban oasis to students, faculty and staff.

The 7,000 square-metre space features a basketball net, volleyball court and a circuit training set-up for those who want to get active outdoors.

Just want to hang out? Grab a spot next to the pond or on one of the 21 benches or 16 picnic tables.

The Grey Nuns green space is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays until fall 2019. Faculty, staff and students can enjoy the garden by scanning a valid Concordia ID at the gate, located off the parking lot at 1200 Guy Street. Alumni and retirees will need to pass by security before heading to the garden.
