I've lived on the North Shore for decades and this is the first time here. What a peasant little interlude. My wife is a professional but relaxes doing gardening. She thoroughly... read more

By donation during Christmas, a fun and easy holiday experience for the whole family that won't break the bank. There is a movie theatre and a white spot, as well as coffee shops, chinese food, subway, flying wedge, so you can get a meal or a snack or see a movie before or afterwards

We came for a late walk about in the evening as we couldn't make it to any of the larger, paid for light displays. The entrance to the park was mostly advertising for local businesses which really overshadowed the lights, however if you go in to the right, there are plenty of beautiful lights, all of the trees and bushes...

This is a perfect 10 minute stroll while you are waiting for the movies or after a restaurant visit at Park and Tilford. Nice for both young and old. Glittering lights decorated in the garden and Christmas feeling. So Van Dusen gardens is so much bigger of course and their Light show is spectacular, but if you don't want to... More

A favourite stroll for three generations. Seasonal plantings are kept pristine. Winter activities make it a year round destination.

I've lived on the North Shore for decades and this is the first time here. What a peasant little interlude. My wife is a professional but relaxes doing gardening. She thoroughly enjoyed it, remarking on all the unique vegetation.

Even though I used to do most of my grocery shopping in this complex , I have never been to the gardens except for a visit last winter . They do a wonderful job of decorating the small area with Christmas lights and other decorations . I can't say what it is like at other times of the year ,... More

This is really at its best during the Christmas season when it's all lit up with lights and seasonal flora and fauna. Right beside JJ Bean so you can perambulate with your choice of caffeine delivery system.

This little garden holds quite a lot of interesting plants in a variety of settings. Loved the history behind the gardens (created as a community gift by a distillery that used to be on the property). The distillery is gone but the garden remains. Lovingly cared for by staff and volunteers, I always like to drop by when I am... More

Bizarre location, not very wild. Sort of a has been place. Worth a stop if you are passing through on a long trip but only for a quick stroll. I was disappointed the first time I went and been hoping for much more.

The gardens use to be well maintained and lovely to walk through. In the past year or more it is a pretty poor showing. Not well maintained and not many interesting or colourful flowers. Not worth the time to go there.
