Vandusen Botanical Garden - Review

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.

Vandusen Botanical Garden, Vancouver Reviews

  • VanDusen is kind of pricey (for the Christmas lights) but I’ve heard it’s beautiful in the spring/summer because of all their flowers. I visited in the winter for their Christmas light festival. It was very pretty but also very cold outside which made the experience less enjoyable, so dress warm! They do have heaters stationed here and there along the way through. The carousel at the end was very fun and cute (and free). They also had food trucks stationed near it. It was worth the experience but I wouldn’t be rushing to go a second time next winter. I will definitely visit during other seasons!

  • Went to a wedding here and the whole thing was amazing. Catering was excellent. The food and the staff were incredible the whole night. The wedding venue was really tasteful and although looked small at first easily seated 120 guests. I would recommend this to anyone looking to have a wedding in Vancouver.

  • Pretty, tranquil place. The map we were given was not very useful - spots not clearly marked. Was happy that parking was free. The Cafe had a nice selection of baked goods, sandwiches and pasta at reasonable prices. Glad to see JJ Bean coffee. I found the gardens at Queen Elizabeth park to be much more beautiful and picturesque and also there's no admission fee there!

  • A wonderful place to have a walk. Very beautiful and peaceful. The entrance ticket is 11 CAD, but I don't regret them. Beautiful flowers and trees are laced with a few contemporary sculptures. There's a place with totem poles - just 2of them but they look lovely and authentic and with a beautiful legend behind them. The best thing however is the maze made of the hedge. Looks small but it's a real one! Not everyone manages to find the exit : many give up and return.

  • I went here on the day something important was happening and I wanted to walk around and absorb the day in beauty and peace. It was everything I needed. At the end I went to the gift shop for a small token to remember the day and was welcomed by a lovely Scottish woman who made me remember that the world is filled with lovely people. Thank you. If anyone can identify the tulip in this photo I would really appreciate it, as I spent most of my time looking for its family and never found a other one.
