  • This Botanical Garden is wonderful. The ticket is slightly pricey, especially if you go with the family, but it is so worth it. You could spend the whole day, especially if the weather is nice. Loved children. We didn't but there are also some nice tours. The labyrinth is a very nice thing to do with kids.

  • Great garden and beautifully maintained. Dear entry. But well worth a visit. Difficult to get to by bus but good with taxi.

  • It was my first time to this park and I loved every minute of it! Some say the maze is too easy but a lot of people were totally lost, you could hear them trying to find the way out.. and having fun doing it. The people who work there were so nice and willing to provide me any information I needed. I went on my own and there were many times when I was completely alone and thoroughly enjoyed the peacefulness.
  • This is one of my favourite botanical gardens in North America. Great price ($11 for adults) and easy way to spend afternoon strolling. I highly recommend getting the tour guides (I believe they are around 2 pm and are included in the price). Every time I go it's breathtaking!
  • when i'm arrived i just want to stay 2hours maximum but finaly i'm staying 4h because it's beautiful. it's maybe in the top 10 of things to see in the vancouver location.
  • I have been to Van Dusen half a dozen times now, in all seasons, and I adore it. The gardens are spacious and have different zones and areas of landscaped wonders. It's a wonderful place to unwind, chill out in the meditation garden, stroll through the rose garden, or catch up with a friend as you saunter along the trails.
  • Stunning botanical garden that is worth seeing year round. Lovely ponds and walking paths. The park has a nice snack/lunch spot and a fun maze.
