Landscape Pavilion

Landscape Pavillion

In 1997, Olds College opened the Landscape Construction Pavilion with support from the Bank of Montreal, the Landscape Alberta Nursery Trades Association and members of the horticulture industry. The Pavilion was constructed in response to industry requests for Olds College to provide students with greater opportunities to develop hands on horticultural skills.

What can you find here?

The facility offers 12,000 square feet of heated indoor space with an earth floor to facilitate student projects. Throughout the year, students complete projects and gain experience in:

  • landscape and golf course construction
  • irrigation installation and testing
  • arboriculture
  • and other areas of horticulture

The Pavilion also fulfills the industry’s need for a facility to be utilized for industry training and certification programs such as the Certified Horticulture Technician and the Utility Tree Worker.
