Yet if you usually enter Brueckner Rhododendron Garden via the parking lot or the Waterfront Trail, chances are you've yet to see one of the prettiest flower beds in the Garden.
As well as annuals such as coleus, lobelia, geraniums and vincas, there are perennials and shrubs, including a stunning PeeGee hydrangea.
And right now, all these flowers and plants are at their peak. Have a look:

|Perennial Grasses, Coleus, Chrysanthemums|
|Coleus Full Bloom at Brueckner Rhododendron Garden|
|Lakeshore Road West Annual Flowers Garden|
|BRG East Garden Rose of Sharon|
If you walk west along Lakeshore, you'll also notice more perennials, shrubs and wildflowers (native plants) as you near the Main Entrance. More wildflowers are in bloom along the creek as you walk south towards the Lake (see wildflowers pictures here).

Another Lake Ontario lookout is being established a few hundred meters east of here.
My thoughts are that the lookout (photo above) become known as the Top Lookout; the new lookout will become known as the Lower Lookout. Right now, a split rail fence is being built at the Lower Lookout, and three new benches will be added to the concrete bases already in place.
