Owner description: VanDusen Botanical Garden is a 55-acre oasis in the heart of Vancouver with over 7,500 plant species and varieties from around the world! Spot and photograph local wildlife, find your way through an Elizabethan hedge maze, unwind in a serene setting, dine on the patios of Truffles Cafe or Shaughnessy Restaurant, or browse the garden-themed gift shop. VanDusen has something for everyone to enjoy! The Garden's multi-award winning LEED Platinum Visitor Centre was named Most Sustainable Building of the Year in 2014. Shaped like an orchid when viewed from above, its organic lines echo the way nature and conservation have been considered at every turn.

Went with the family mid August to have a picnic on the great lawn. The gardens are beautiful and full of sculptures and paths that kids live exploring. The maze is also fun for kids.

We loved the garden. It was beautiful and manages to achieve that rare delight in an attraction open to the public - a sense of peace and traquility. The cafe was good too!

Lots of Rhododendron. Pretty pond, eco-friendly. I am really enjoy to walk in the garden during the spring time.
If the membership can bee cheaper, I will get it every year.

I love nature and peace and tranquility and VanDusen delivers on all fronts. Just off a busy street but a million miles away. Bring an extra memory card because you WILL take loads of shots. Would return anytime!
