About Vandusen Botanical Garden, Vancouver

The VanDusen Botanical Garden is spread across 55 acres and is home to plants from all over the world. The gardens are built on the grounds of a former golf course and have ponds, totem poles and beautiful stone sculptures that add to its beauty. The maze, the vegetable garden along with the ‘black garden’, the cypress pond and the seasonal ‘fragrance garden’ only scratch the surface of the place. A walk here in the autumn season sees a gorgeous turn of colours of the tree leaves while spring season is the peak time to visit the garden. The ‘Festival of light’ is the annual highlight of the botanical garden.

Vandusen Botanical Garden, Vancouver Reviews

  • It's a very beautiful place with multiple events the whole year round. I especially love walking around their in the summer to observe the well kept nature. I don't see any garbage laying around so you can definitely tell that it's being well kept. Definitely some where I'd come back to. Unfortunately, it does get boring quickly after dropping by a couple of times. You basically know where everything is.

  • Beautiful place. We went to see the Christmas light display during December. It was absolutely amazing and worth every penny. Walked around for a couple hours taking in all the wonderful lights and other Christmas displays. I am definitely going to have to check this place out in the spring or summer to take in all the vegetation while it is green. Highly recommended if you like Christmas lights. The admission is reasonable too, especially during the winter months.

  • The VanDusen Botanical Garden is very beautiful in both spring and winter. I've been there twice and have been in awe each time. It is clean and well kept. Definitely worth the trip. The Festival of Lights I especially spectacular. They have an abundance of beautiful lights, great music and light shows, and creative ways of reusing plastic bottles to make some of their light flowers.

  • Came for the winter light show recently. Have been during the spring as well to see the gardens which were beautiful. It was great to see everything lit up. We rode the carousel which was a real blast of nostalgia. Good food options around and mulled wine to be had. Just wish it was open longer because the time went by so fast.

  • This is a must see if you like plants or sculpture. So beautiful! We were here in the summer and everything was vivid green. I'm sure the springtime would be spectacular with everything in bloom. The shrub maze is really fun and it's a great place for a walk, yoga or picnicking
