Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens are an act of love, developed by one man in an effort to fulfill a dream to share with all. Bryan Zimmerman's Xmas Tree Farm and Santa's Barn are well-known in the Comox Valley during the winter months. He always knew he lived in a beautiful spot but it wasn't until he began clearing out some of the thick brush on his 24 acres of forested land that he thought of a way to share it with others.

Studying the interesting topography and unique layout gave him the idea for creating the woodland gardens. Over the next years he began to build his wonderland dream clearing the underbrush by hand to reveal a forest floor more beautiful than he had imagined.

  • Such a magical place! There's so much to explore here, from the more rugged trails by the river to many easy trails winding throughout the park by lakes and ponds.
  • Magical woodland paths and natural sculptures; a meditative, secluded trail. See if you can find the hidden labyrinth. October has amazing wild mushrooms along paths and mystical open groves within the woods. This is one of the places that made us fall in love with the Comox Valley.
  • Very cool garden ... looks like it's for sale Worth checking out ..
  • Very cool natural garden setting. Lots of very nice paths, a creek and great open spaces. Hopefully Katy the dog will follow you around. Owners are very nice.
  • It is a beautiful walk with the water features , wishing it was spring though to see the flowers, must be amazing. Still a nice place to spend some time walking and taking in nature.
