Lovely gardens, but definitely more of a gardeners garden. A hidden gem, but not a full day activity, think we were there for about 30mins in total.

Lovely pond with terrapins, koi fish and a mummy duck with 10 ducklings!!

This garden is a little gem that is a must see when visiting Victoria! The garden is beautiful! The people working there are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend having the tea, sandwiches & pastries at the Teahouse. They were incredible! The service was awesome, the price reasonable and the view stunning!

This isn't the Butcharts but it has a charm of its own. You can see the dedication put into the gardens and it is a joy to walk through them. The history alone is interesting. Take the time to have a bite to eat in their lovely tea room. The food was excellent. Service was great.
Overall great experience. I would recommend this to everyone.

We live in Victoria, my sister was visiting, and we wanted to do a high tea without paying Empress Hotel prices. Even though the day was overcast and a bit drizzly, it was really a lovely experience., the high tea was delicious, we could not eat it all and took most of the desserts home. The gardens are gorgeous and a nice walk after tea. Highly recommend it.
