The gardens use to be well maintained and lovely to walk through. In the past year or more it is a pretty poor showing. Not well maintained and not many interesting or colourful flowers. Not worth the time to go there.

We usually walk through here during Christmas to look at the lights. The garden itself isn't very big so it's perfect for families with little kids who don't like walking.

Good place to walk through year round next to shopping area, Christmas time it is lighted up and allot of special arrangements, and at that time there is a donation, otherwise usually free to public.

My favourite section is the Japanese Garden - when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. The petals fall on the water feature, giving a wonderful sense of calm and peacefulness. Being a local, it's easy to stop by and wander the gardens for 15 or 20 minutes ... a hidden oasis - always rejuvenating. As a tourist attraction it's not... More

The park is uniquely located at the corner of a retail center. We thought we were in the wrong location when we first drove up. The park is not overwhelming in size, but we can appreciate what a nice diversion it is for those who live in the area. The hardscaping was extensive and you can sense that they are... More

The gardens are a mere shadow of their former selves (basically back before the distillers moved out of North Vancouver). Moderately interesting if you have a few moments in the neighbourhood and want to chill for 5-10 minutes. Definitely not a destination.

If you're stopping by the mall for coffee or food, make sure to swing into the gardens. Excellent display of a huge array of plants both native and non-native to the area. Always something new to see no matter what time of year. And being free, the price can't be beat!

This free local park has been in existence since 1969. Last time I was here it seemed much larger, but that was 30 plus years ago. If is still a very pleasant area to visit and walk around. It is located in the corner of the Park and Tilford mall; bordering a busy street. It has several water features, a... More

Living near this gem of a garden makes it easy to drop in weekly or more to see what is in bloom, coming up or starting to fade away. The gardens staff do a wonderful job year round, are very approachable if you have questions about something they have or your own garden plantings and the P & T plant... More
