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.

  • We have a family membership and go 3 to 4 times a year. Best to visit in the late spring for cherry blossoms and summer for the roses and other blooms. In the fall and winter everything is pretty much dead but they do have Halloween and Christmas light festivals that are worth attending. Staff are friendly and everything is very well maintained. We actually got married here in the summer and it was a very stress free experience. The staff were efficient and helpful. The prices were good and we used the onsite catering company, Truffles.

  • Review of the VanDusen Glow in the Garden event that I attended with my 2 (teenage) children on Halloween night. I would have liked it better if the description on the website had mentioned that it is only a small fraction of the park garden that is decorated and accessible for this event. I had shown pictures of the maze and pond to my children and we were all disappointed that all of that was out of bounds! The good parts were the actors dressed up as Alice in Wonderland characters (they did a great job of "being in character" and were very accessible for pictures and interaction), and the decorations were very well done. As expected it was crowded but that was not as disappointing as the actual (limited) size of the event itself. I would go back to visit the entire garden again as it is amazing, but not the glow in the garden. "Glow in the garden" is probably better suited to those with younger children.

  • This is a review for the Halloween event only not the gardens. Hoping to warm some folks before they get disappointed. While the lights/pumpkins/Alice in wonderland theme/ are all tastefully done, it is so busy that you're constantly bumping into people, imagine trying to get on/off the Skytrain during hour. The area is very small (only a fraction of the Christmas light event). We arrived at 615 and had to wait 30 min just to get in. One of the volunteers said there were so many people that if was becoming a safety issue so they couldn't let people in. Better save your money for their Christmas show.

  • This is a fantastic place in every season! Well-maintained garden with tons of things to see and learn. One visit is probably not enough to discover all of it. The maze is very cool. Admission for one is only $8. There is an artisan shop close to the entrance with way overpriced products, I don't recommend to anyone to buy anything. I didn't discover the Truffle coffee, though.

  • Great garden, especially for their themed events in the winter. They typically have an Alice in Wonderland them in October that takes up 1/4 of the park. In December that have a really nice light display that is quite a bit larger. Service fees for buying tickets online are expensive though. (25% on a $10 ticket)
