I admit to being a gardener so gardens are the places I tend to visit the most. What I really liked about this garden were the educational shelves with plants, their names, and locations in the garden along the path to the entrance. It was great to be able to identify what we were seeing once we were in the garden. The day we were there, it was also pointed out the Giant Himalayan Lilies were blooming and where we could find them - apparently they take a long time to bloom, so we were fortunate to see these easily 8-10 foot or taller stalks of lilies - too tall for me to get in one picture unless I stood a far distance away. Not all the paths are paved, so decent walking shoes would be recommended. There are lots of paths to choose from or you could just find the great lawn and just sit down with a blanket and a book. There is even a maze good for grown-ups and kids alike - I admit we asked some kids to help us find our way out. Most of the plants and trees have "name tags" which was very helpful in many instances. There are some very interesting sculptures and pieces of art work placed around the park. Many of the sculptures were conversation starting and/or thought provoking especially unexpected ghostly ones. I loved seeing yellow peonies and a False Acacia tree for the first time! There is a nice gift shop and Truffles Café at the front of the park. If you like ginger try the ginger lemonade, it was very refreshing. If I lived in Vancouver I would have a yearly membership to this garden, there is so much to see, and I can imagine it is very different with the changing seasons.
