VanDusen Botanical Garden just reopened for Spring when we visited. Cherry blossoms and spring blooms were available to check out. The maze was a fun activity (yes, even for adults)! I'm absolutely sure the place is gorgeous in the summer!

Taking a stroll thru’ VanDusen is like a peaceful escape from the stresses of modern living. Wandering the gardens on Mother’s Day is a tradition for our family. Get your zen on, and give yourself a mini-vacation .. it’s literally a walk in the park!

We were there for the lights festival just before Christmas. It was a good experience for the winter. Nice lights with recycled material. Good ideas with lots of places for taking photos.

We visited from another near by city and this was our third time this year as we enjoyed the gardens and restaurants. Visited Sept 6th, we are seniors, can walk but wish there was more seating in this park. We got our tickets but no maps so asked and got one. We usually enjoy the area infront of the main restaurant where there is a small water pool. No water flowers, water dark brown, why? We walked to the rose garden area, and as gardeners felt that this area needed much attention in cleaning and pruning. Enjoyed the ponds, no small river running why? we walked around to the signage stating restrooms, path not well marked but near totem poles. Got to the restroom and other people there with small children also. The restroom stated closed. This was the same last visit in August so where to go? The other family also did not like the closed sign. We then had to hurry back to main office, should be portables, or someone at restroom area. I did mention this concern to Chinese man at counter and Chinese man at line up. We went walking again and found paths and area's delightful. No one around in park to ask questions about certain trees, plants, would be nice information. We might come again for the Christmas lights. It just seemed the young man at booth was not that interested in our concerns this time. Could improve relations and conveniences. Longbeach.…
