A great mix of permanent beds - perennial, useful, monastic, innovative and more - and special sites created around indigenous, Chinese and Japanese themes. Plus arboretums and ponds that we did have time and energy to explore after a 3 hour visit. Will return next...More

For those who have seen the Bucharest garden in Victoria,BC this is a disappointment. After having travelled so far then paying for the parking separate and entrances separate it was definitely not worth it. You could visit if you seriously have no where else to...More

in Sept 2017, much of the garden was under construction. There were huge areas off limits and behind barricades.

I had limited time, so I did not get to see it all. It is basically a collection of theme gardens. Given the harsh climate, it was impressive what they have done. Of course, lilies do all right in harsh climates, so that was their...More

Your best option is to take the green line and get off at the Pie IX station. From there, walk up the hill, make a right on Sherbrooke and it's right there. Should take you 10 minutes to walk from the metro station.
