This garden is not overly large, nor exceptional, but it is FREE! The entrance is a bit hidden in the strip mall. We choice to buy a lunch and then quietly eat it in the Gardens. It is clean a cool paradise on a hot day. Clean restrooms.

I visit this often and its a lovely walk around. I just feel that during the Christmas period the display of lights is just too much and too dazzling to the extent that it makes me disorient. It's a really lovely display but too much for me!!

There is no admission fee and you can stroll among the different areas of the garden. There are quiet places to sit and relax but also some beautiful places to admire. I find it an oasis of beauty.

If you live on the North Shore, at some point you will have visited P&T gardens? Beautifully manicured an in a quiet setting. Grandparents took us here many times in the 60's. Went back a few years ago and still a fantastic place!

This gem on the North Shore is never crowded, has no entry fee, and offers you the most delicious experience of walking through a garden that you didn't have to plant or weed yourself. Get a sandwich or a coffee from one of the nearby restaurants and sit in the Japanese Garden or the White Garden for the full experience.

This is one of the real advantages of living in North Vancouver, it's beautiful in all seasons, well looked after, and informative re plants. Their Christmas display is a delight.
