I discovered this coin of paradise: colorful, quiet, peaceful, hidden behind the hostel. I did find beautiful places just exploring on foot.

The gardens are small but very beautiful, not something you would expect to find. When walking in the city or on the way to Cow Bay you should stop and have a look on the way.

These gardens are a lovely place to spend some time when in Prince Rupert. We visited in mid June and the display of flowers was quite wonderful. Interesting history as an ammunitions store in WW2.

very well done, although we were just a little early as the ladies were just doing their spring planting, so I'm sure it would be colourful a little later. A must see.

Stumbled on this little hidden gem. If you can find it, worth a stroll during the summer. It's amazing that a garden is hidden so deep in the neighbourhood. Very cool.

I loved this place. Visited on May 4/12 and already some of the flowers were in bloom. Once a hole in the ground as an excavation for a city hall , then tunnels added to it for ammunition storage during WWII, and now a sunken garden cared for by volunteers. Even in early spring, it was a place to sit... More

Tiny little garden made out of an awkward space that was once part of the military base. Not really all that great, but kind of interesting to see what they did with a big hole in the ground.

This is a well kept secret behind the court house. It is quite lovely and landscaped beautifully. There are tables and benches, and a walkway to the oceanfront. Right now, the flowers are in bloom and there are many colors and scents. Beautiful. There is also a walkway to the waterfront, for additional viewing. Definitely worth a visit. There is... More
