  • I hosted a small group of seniors to the gardens on June 12/2017. Weather was perfect which helps. Although we are between spring & summer there was still plenty to see. Lots of colours, open green ex...  more »

  • VanDusen is an absolutely beautiful park. The gardens are broken up into flora from different regions around the world. The botanical center itself is a stunning piece of sustainable architecture and design, almost worth checking out on its own. Some highlights include the springtime Cherry blossoms, the car show, and definitely the Christmas lights during the winter.
  • Beautiful place to bring any visitors in the spring or summer. It looks a little different every time I go and the Christmas lights are stunning. Photographers especially will enjoy their time here
  • This botanical garden amazed me. It is extremely well kept and a lot of work and love are obviously going into it's maintenance. Very beautiful with lots of things to see. You can literally spend days here walking, looking and exploring.
  • Very nice, large garden. Keep an eye out for squirrels, turtles, birds, and ducks milling about. The only thing a little disappointing was the rock garden didn't look like it was set up or maintained. I recommend bringing a picnic. Will go again!
  • Stunning, beautiful botanic garden with unique acheticture. Worth checking out and a must-see for tourists. The Christmas light show is also spectacular and can't be missed.
