Visited this area with two small children who were able to explore secret areas. They did require constant supervision but here were a lot of interesting places for them and the adults to explore.

The walk through the gardens is really nice on a warm day and the views from the beach are a great place to enjoy their delicious food. The food here rivals anywhere else in town and the setting is spectacular.

Most everything in Tofino is beach and forest (nothing wrong with that!!!), it was just nice to have another option. We spent around 2 1/2 hours slowly poking our way through the gardens. Lots of very cool sculptures in there! Go see for yourself!!

A pleasant garden with interesting architecture and stone formations. A short drive from Tofino Centre. Beautiful trees, walking paths and displays. About a full two hrs to tour the entire garden. Nothing to compare to Butchart but pleasant, a nice break from beaches and surfers....More

Loved walking around the paths and enjoyed the whimsical outdoor artwork. Pop out onto views of the water from little trails throughout the park

Visited this as a break stop with a coach group. The cafe had run out of English breakfast tea (bad move with a coachload of brits). Nice enough to stretch your legs and have a drink, but not something I would have wanted to make...More
