  • Love going for walks through all the gardens. wonderful that they change the gardens depending on the season. Best time of the year to go is spring or summer when all the slowest start to bloom. Nice little cafe indoors. They have a huge amazing variety of plants as well as activities throughout the grounds ranging from a maze to exploring one of many ponds on the grounds. Would recommend early morning when they open as it is less busy
  • Great programming for kids! Worth taking your class if you're looking for field trip ideas. The kids love the maze! They work year round to make the garden worth visiting, so it's worth checking out as a tourist or a local looking for something to do. The special events are always worth checking out as well. Particularly the Christmas lights!
  • The most breathtaking botanical garden I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting! It’s a gentle reminder that life appears in a variety of forms, and that it’s important to stop and smell the flowers. Each section of the garden is artfully curated, with a diverse collection of colors & textures to explore. I especially love the fact that there are hiking trails available—it adds a whole new layer of interactivity with the plants and exhibits. It seems very unique to VanDusen! I absolutely adored this place and hope to come back.
  • How to describe this but a photographer's playground with vibrant colors of nature since it was autumn and everything was blooming and changing colors. This garden was so nice, it has almost the same feel as walking through natural in some sections. It was just filled with plants from different regions blended together to form a cohesive landscape. The maze was tall and fun to explore and you can peek over the walls so it is definitely worth exploring. We weren't here at the time cherry blossoms would have bloomed but I would sure like to come back to see it and everything else bloom!
  • I didn’t expect to be surprised but I was wrong. When we went to Vancouver, it was next to our air b&b. We went there just because it was next to us but I am glad we went there. Garden is very colorful place. Very nice place to visit. Lot of nice scenery for great photo shoot. Rose garden was amazing. Lot of different roses from around the world. They also have some statutes. Maze was awesome. We had great deal of fun. Stuff and customer service was very good. I highly recommend going there.
