Lots of walking but well worth it....lots of information and informative staff and a very insightful place for different varieties and how to grow them. The gardens are well kept and a wonderful place to visit.

Really beautifully curated gardens with plenty of detailed information. When I visited, Vancouver was unusually hot an the gardens were a terrific oasis of dappled shade from maple trees, beautifully manicured lawns and breathtaking lily ponds. I saw a couple of people had taken in lawn chairs and had settled in for the afternoon reading and watching the sun set into the early evening which seemed like a brilliant idea. A terrific place to while away an afternoon exploring.

The best time to see VanDeusen Gardens is in April when the rhododendrons explode in a rainbow of splendor. The deep, brilliant violets, magentas, mauves, pinks, reds and purples, are truly a sight to behold. If you come in the summer, they will have shriveled up and fallen to the ground and you may be disappointed. In the winter, if you happen to be so fortunate as to visit during our rare white Christmases, which occur once every ten years, you will be dazzled by the Festival of Lights. It has a very beautiful effect when snow has fallen. Regardless, whether or not you see many flowers, the gardens are still quite beautiful and relaxing and there are some secluded places where you can sit and read, do yoga, or meditate. There are lakes, a fountain, a maze and waterfalls. There's also a good restaurant on site. A great getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Highly recommended !!!

This place is huge and there's so much to see. We walked around for hours and actually took a pen and traced out our route on the map to be sure we didn't miss anything.
