At the beginning of the 2003 tourist season, the Niagara Parks Commission discontinued a two acre experimental outdoor Mosaiculture Garden at the Greenhouse facilities and gardens.

The one million dollar ($1,000,000) project was not a financial success during its first year (2002). The garden area that once housed the Mosaiculture exhibit has been turned into an Artist's Garden. Here, local artists display their works of arts on specific dates throughout the season. There is no charge.

The Niagara Parks Commission Greenhouses and Artist's Garden are located approximately one quarter mile  south of the Table Rock Pavilion and the Horseshoe Falls and is situated across from the former Toronto Power Station. 

The Commissioners of the Queen Victoria Park required a large amount of numerous high quality plant species for development of Queen Victoria Park. This plant/flower supply was not commercially available.

In 1894, two small wood framed greenhouses were built directly opposite the Toronto Power House. In 1897, a sixty feet wide by twenty feet long public conservatory was added onto the original greenhouse structure along with a plant propagation house and fernery.
