Nestled in the Shaugnessey neighborhood of Vancouver, the botanical gardens feature plants from all over the world, with an extensive collection of native British Columbia (Northwest Coast) plants. Over 1,200 volunteers guide guests through the lush beds, explaining the history and features of the plants and trees. Native wildlife, including songbirds, ducks, fish, and butterflies, live in the gardens, adding to the natural appeal. With a Bloom Calendar and a cycle of planning based on the seasons, you can see something new every time you visit.
