  • It even snows in December, snow in the mountains, just a rare sunny day (usually rainy and cloudy), is one of the best views in the UBC or Vancouver in. Many people stop in this cold weather, sit on the bench, to take pictures. On a sunny, clean as locals and to stretch your legs.

  • It belongs to the University and is well maintained, with plants in different locations and exotic species. Take advantage to get to know the University and this garden on a visit

  • A beautiful garden and the treetop walk is fun, join a guided group to hear about the seasonal chenges and points of interest. Beautiful colours in fall.
