  • Went with my wife and family visiting for outside B.C. Gardens are very lovely, well taken care of and have a great variety of plants. Wondering the gardens can give you great ideas about plants that would highlight our yard and add to the diversity of plants. Wish they would have more names and where the plants are from, but taking pictures and showing them to our garden center personnel got the job done.
  • A little under kept. Late spring until mid summer would be best for viewing this place. A fairly short walk around and a somewhat quiet place in the city to relax at. Stroller friendly.
