These gardens are decorated so beautifully around Christmas time...it reminds me of a fantasy walk as seen at Disney Land... no admission, no lineup...just a peaceful walk through the gardens can take 5 minutes or 20 depending on how long you want to spend.

It doesn't take more than 10 - 15 minutes to stroll round but very well worth the effort. The gardens are well maintained with a large variety of plants to see. At Christmas the lights are truly lovely and plentiful. We go all through the year and always enjoy something new, We particularly like the pond and the turtles and... More

I had never been to Park & Tilford Gardens before, so wasn't sure what to expect, but took my daughter just before Christmas to see their spectacular light display. It was quite amazing. The entire garden was decked out in Christmas lights. My daughter LOVED it. It may be smaller than Van Dusen, but if you are in the area... More

The parking Tilford gardens were constructed has a little escape for staff who used to work at a brewery located on the land where the shopping center is now. The shopping center is in an L-shaped and in the corner is the gardens. As soon as you enter the gardens you forget what you have just left. There are flowers... More

Seems like they gave up heating the theatres this winter. Seen two movies in the last month and was so could nearly left. I understand its nice in the summer to have a cold theatre, but during the winter it was miserable.

If you are in the area and you wanna spend few minutes walkinf in a small but nice garden, go there. May you can have a sit a read a book for awhile. But I wouldn't go if you have to drive for more than few miles. Nothing special at all.

Its like a little secret garden for family or individuals. Great for kids to explore. In the right season, it's a great place to take family photos. The one drawback is that it backs on to a noisy street. If you're at Park & Tilford it is worth a visit.
