The Knowledge Garden is a reading garden and performance space located between the Bob Harkins Branch and the Prince George Civic Centre, adjacent to Patricia Boulevard. The garden features benches, a picnic site, a Children’s Garden as well as a small amphitheatre where we conduct outdoor programs like story times and can host musicians and public speakers.
