I purchased a Groupon for half off admission. I went mainly to experience the canopy walk, which normally has an additional cost. The gardens are so tranquil and beautiful and very well-maintained. You could spend hours strolling through the many different paths. Of course our gorgeous sunny weather today made it that much more beautiful. Even on a rainy day... More

Beautiful walks along well maintained trails Kids will love the Canopy Walk and Moon Gate. Free parking for up to 3 hours. Wonderful venue for weddings. So close to the city yet secluded natural environment. Not to be missed by locals or visitors to the city.

Waaaay down deep in the gardens is the tree canopy walk that makes this visit worth the trip. The hanging pathways are high enough up to be a true canopy walk, and the move and swing enough to be quite the ride! A definite value for families, young at heart adverturesome types. But close your pockets, and hang onto your... More

The gardens were beautiful and the docent did a wonderful job explaining each and every variety.....he added a few jokes......and warned us about putting our fingers in the holes.

Great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The canopy walk was the highlight of my weekend in Vancouver.

The Greenheart Canopy Walk is a wonderful find, tucked away in the UBC Botanical Gardens. We went on an overcast day in the late summer and had the treetops almost entirely to ourselves. "What is it?" you might be wondering. Imagine traipsing across suspended bridges and platforms (all safe, of course) amongst a group of trees and peering down to... More

UBC Botanical Gardens is a peaceful, beautiful place to spend a few hours exploring. We went this time, mainly for the Greenheart Canopy Walkway. It was something we had promised our grandchildren that we would do on their "Staycation" with us. They really enjoyed the walk up in the trees and were able to do the canopy a number of... More

Loved walking around the grounds with kids. Went early and it was nice and quiet so it felt we had the whole place to ourselves.

I have been here 3 times now and each time I saw even more! Lots of labels for those interested...The highlight for my students is to take the Greenheart Canopy Walkway with their admission. Cheaper admission can be found with groupons.
