The gardens are a tiered area with fauna and plants carefully looked after. It is out of the way and a delight to walk through

Having read the reviews I was looking forward to something special, but it was disappointing. Gardens are pretty, but nothing spectacular like Butchart. Food was tasty, but expensive. Although it is "free" there is a suggested donation of $10. I wouldn't recommend it.

Beautiful, easily walkable gardens with a nice family run tea house in the center. Service was good and friendly. Food was good but no comparison to White Heather.

This is a by-donation garden, unless you want to go for afternoon tea. This place is absolutely gorgeous. It is an easy walk through the garden and they give you a map with details on each section. A must see for sure!

We rushed in at the last minute so we had to hurry around the garden, but it was BEAUTIFUL! We loved seeing all the flowers and going down the different paths. Definitely a bit of a walk, but so nice.
