  • The Garden is huge and the different sections had been fitted with lights appropriate to the various cultures (First Nation, Chinese, Japanese, etc.) Highly recommend it because it includes access...

  • Beautiful gardens, tons of walking paths, many places to sit in the shade and admire the views. The presentations we saw were well done and interesting. We especially loved the Chinese garden. It was very hot today though and we didn't get to see many of the gardens - my back and feet just couldn't take the amount of walking.
  • One of my favourite gardens across North America, and rivals some of the best I’ve seen in the world! Tons of pretty flowers, interesting trees, arranged with care in various smaller (and educational) gardens like the First Nations garden, Chinese garden, and Japanese garden to name a few. Large variety of plants and landscapes plus events like tea ceremonies and lantern festivals means I love coming every few months to see what’s new! I’d highly recommend the Chinese garden in particular with the large pond, multiple pavilions and bonsai (-like?) collection! I’ve come alone, with friends and with family and it’s always a great time
