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

  • We had an absolute blast exploring the botanical garden. Very open feel with great maps and markings to keep you on track. Plenty to see and lots of Flora you won't normally get to see. The cafe on premise seemed to have some great food, and offered a picnic for 2, which we would definitely take advantage of at some point. I would encourage everyone to get out on a nice day and try to take in as much as possible.

  • A "Super Duper", Beautiful/Delightful Park. This a very, centrally located, highly rated (by visitors), large Botanical garden (comprising 55 acres) and diverse Park with about 7,500 plants. The 45 year old Park has over 1,200 volunteers--- many of whom have had a long term relationship with specific species... There are themed areas including a Rose Garden, Water fountains, beautiful flowers throughout. The gift shoppe is interesting... as is the Visitor's centre's focus and award for its "sustainable building features". The Park also has two (which are interesting to "foodies") restaurants, a small parking area and is inexpensive to enter. It is very worthwhile to visit!! I hope that this Review has been helpful.

  • Best times to visit is April-June when all the flowers are blooming! If not it's still a great place to walk rain or shine. Check out the hedge maze too! Fall colors are awesome as well. Free guided walking tours in peak season. They're open everyday except for Christmas.

  • One of my favourite places. The gardens are beautiful, the staff is wonderful, and the food is delicious. The backyard bird garden is a great addition. Prices are also reasonable. If I lived in Vancouver or nearby I would definitely purchase a yearly membership and visit often. You can spend time here just at the cafe or restaurant (without an entry fee) as well. Watch for the turtles, herons, owls, and hummingbirds seen here often.

  • We had recently went there to watch Fall colors. The place has ample space for parking. Once you get the ticket, you can get a map of the place which helps in navigating. The Autumn Stroll was awesome. The colors were vibrant. The rose garden was awesome as well. They have a maze which is fun. The place has a little restaurant as well. Also there are Cherry trees. Spring would be a nice time to check the Cherry blossom.
