We were surprised to find such a quiet spot. Pleasant for a relaxing stop. I do wish that the plants had been identified.

On this, our second foray to Rupert, my husband and I took our 2 adult sons on their first Rupert adventure and this was one of the mandatory visits. So well layed out and so beautiful!

Wow, what a pleasant surprise. Someone walked out of the gardens and said you really have to take a look. We were on a short holiday and off we went, truly not disappointed. You could see that work was in progress for maintenance and I suspect it is a lot of volunteers, places to sit and eat your lunch if you were inclined.

The Sunken Gardens are located behind the Courthouse building and are maintained by the Prince Rupert Garden Club. The gardens are beautiful!! They have used many different colors and textures in their plantings, and the whole effect is just gorgeous. Highly recommend a stop here while in town.

An amazing park hidden behind the court house. Amazing why the caretaker of the time did to create this amazing place. Don't miss it.

The Sunken Gardens is a beautiful place to visit very near to the Cow Bay area of Prince Rupert. It is hidden away in the grounds and behind the Rupert Courthouse. We had to enter it through a small tunnel and there is an exit through another tunnel, though these tunnels can be avoid by entering from the courthouse grounds.

Watching the cheerful colored flowers and green trimmed bushes is bound to perk up anyone’s feeling of well-being. Since we were staying in a hostel nearby we would often take the short cut through the Sunken Gardens to emerge at Cow Bay and the Prince Rupert Harbor.

This is a lovely park near the City Centre where one can just come and sit and enjoy the variety of flowers and trees.

Anyone interested in seeing what kind of flowers can grow in that area should see the Sunken Gardens. Suggest one asks at the Visitor Centre how to find it, since the signs are not visible from any distance.

Behind the courthouse and through a tunnel, you will find a former rock quarry that has been converted to a pretty garden space. Situated in the middle of government offices, it may be a good lunch spot. The drinkers sitting in the tunnel were friendly young folk, which we are used to, but I’m sure the average tourist wouldn’t walk through that tunnel without knowing the drinkers were harmless.
