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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Vancouver Itinerary 4 Days.

  • Always a great place to check out. We have had memberships here for a few years now and thoroughly enjoy every experience we have had there. Seeing the change in seasons, having picnics, and family walks here have been a great benefit for us. Since it is kept very tidy, then we prefer it over city parks for our family. The cost of a membership is a great value as long as you come regularly. Members usually get deals on special events as well. Our young boy lives running around and investigating what’s being offered. Always a sure thing for a good time.

  • I came here for the Christmas Festival of Lights. The display is beautiful. Literally the whole garden is lit up. It's truly spectacular in person. Pictures just do not do it justice. You could tell a lot of time and effort went into putting the light display up. There were a few food trucks for those of us who wanted a quick bite and free cookies + hot chocolate on the way out. The lineup for advance ticket holders, however, wasn't working, so my party waited a good half an hour before reaching the entrance. It would have been a lot quicker had I not bought in advance. The parking is also very limited. Be prepared to walk far.

  • A lush, tranquil garden for the whole family. Daily flower and foliage samples are displayed outside the entrance. Winter hours are quite short, be sure to give yourself at least 2 hours inside the garden. The garden has excellent biodiversity and several different biospheres based off of different continents and geography. Trails are wide, mostly gravel/boardwalk with moderate albeit short hills throughout.

  • Beautiful garden right in the city with an amazing Festival of Lights during the Christmas season. They have a free carousel there! During the rest of the year in the day, it's definitely still worth a visit taking on all the huge selection of colourful flowers and plants. The cafe has decent lunch options as well.

  • Went for the Festival of Lights, the event itself is well run and the grounds are quite clean. The traffic and parking in this area is a nightmare though. The parking lot was closed as full but after we found street parking 6 blocks away, we walked through the lot and there were actually lots of empty spaces. Trying to turn left off of Oak took several sets of lights to accomplish. The city should look at changing this light to an advance turning light or having police attend to direct traffic during busy event times of year.
