This place was beautiful, lots of beautiful flowers and foliage. The pathways were clean and well maintained. The highlight of my visit was to the Greenhart Canopy Walk. A must for anyone who likes a little adventure and excitement! The canopy walk is a series of suspension bridges up in the canopy of the trees, not for the faint of... More

Greenheart Canopy Walkway was fun and an awesome experience for our family! First, grab the Groupon deal for $23 CAD for a family of four (you save about 50%). Our family bought lunch at Granville Island Public Market and ate first at the picnic area of the garden. It was a lovely Sunday afternoon and we didn't even smell the... More

The Greenheart Canopy Walkway is essentially a narrow suspension bridge in the trees. The swaying can be scary. The rest of the Botanical Garden has lots of interesting plants.

As others have previously commented, first obtain a discount Groupon coupon. I took my 2 grandkids (5 & 6) and my daughter-in-law. I showed the coupon on my iPhone Groupon app and the clerk simply clicked on the app to redeem it. I like slick and simple. Today was a hot summer day so being able to duck into the... More

The highlight is the green canopy walk which is a series of narrow suspension bridges up high in the trees. It's best to go solo on each section if you want to limit the swaying. The rest of the gardens are lush and full of interesting plants. However the experience would be improved if there was better labelling of the... More

Gorgeous gardens and the colours of the flowers are so brilliant and bright beautiful aromas the flowers permeate as you walk by or sitting there. The trees are so many different species and are huge. Bring your camera as there are so many different gardens and blooms

This is a very good botanical garden that should be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. There are a great many unusual plants for a European visitor. The gardening staff were informative and willing to talk about their areas. The paths are well marked and accessible to most. Some of the signage could be improved .

This is an excellent botanical garden, and probably the best in western Canada (although the Van Dusen Botanical Garden might dispute this, justifiably). It has two main parts - a woodland garden dominated by native conifers but underplanted with a wide variety of primarily Asian plants, and then a more open area, that contains, curiously, an eastern North American (Acadian)...

My husband, grandson and I toured the garden and we loved the beautiful plants. The walks are well marked and it was very peaceful and calm. We tried the Canopy Walk but we were actually terrified because the walkways are very creaky, they swing from side to side very easily, and we had to focus all our attention on walking... More
