Garden Nature / Park
Find yourself surrounded by colorful blossoms and fragrant blooms at Eden Garden, a 2.2 hectare (5.5 acre) award-winning garden. Stroll the paths to view its many plant collections including vireyas, camellias, bromeliads, perennials, and native New Zealand species. Thanks to the varying seasonality, you'll always find something in bloom here, plus waterfalls, rock formations, and plenty of resident native birds--all backed by views of the city and harbor. The garden was constructed at the site of an abandoned quarry, completed 45 years after a group of volunteers committed to doing so. Of particular mention is the its collection of vireya rhododendrons, which flower throughout the year.
