  • Vancouver is known for its natural beauty. In many ways, Van Dusen Botanical Garden is just the pinnacle of that natural beauty. There is not a whole lot that I can use my words to describe the beauty...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Came here for a wedding! It is a beautiful low key place to visit. There are lots and lots of pokestops for those who enjoy Pokemon Go. Pack a picnic or buy one from Truffles cafe located at the park entrance.
  • It was a cloudy/rainy day but we enjoyed our visit very much. A large variety of plants, beautiful set-ups, and we loved the maze!
  • I've travelled to more than 30 countries till now and visited dozens Botanical Gardens around the world. VanDusen is, without doubt, one of the prettiest gardens you will ever visit. Spring is gorgeous, summer is fabulous, autumn has a special character and winter has illuminations and music. Whenever you go, your pictures will always remind how fortunate you were for visiting one of the best gardens in our planet! Enjoy your visit! It's really awesome there!
  • I came as a tourist and visited Vandusan botanical garden which was one of the best botanical gardens I have ever visited due to the fact that you can learn a lot about trees, flowers, and variety and diversity of plants that I have read about in scientific magazines and textbooks. Some plants like the pitcher plant, meat eaters being taught to college students in ecology and plant science but never seen in real life till this visit. Vandusan botanical garden is a great place to enjoy the day at any season and experience a memorable time in a wonderful world!.
