  • I just love coming back to these gardens. Always special. You just know those who work here love it! Best get back to my back yard now!!!  more »
  • This is a place that is awesome at various times of the year, but at the time of Christmas (December and early January) for the special Christmas lights with music, carousel, etc. Is one of the most beautiful things to enjoy on a freezing day. Visually gorgeous, is a beautiful experience. Impressive and unforgettable, devote your time to this beautiful place.

  • 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.
