Elysium Gardens, Kelowna (JF Bergeron photo)
Nature is never far away in British Columbia, even in cities and towns.
Vancouver's Stanley Park was named one of the “Five Best Urban Escapes in Canada” by The Independent, a UK newspaper (2007). As well, dozens of BC communities have beautified their green spaces through the national “Communities in Bloom” program.
Gardens flourish in southern BC due to long growing seasons, mild temperatures and a healthy amount of rainfall. Stroll by perfectly coiffed blooms at The Butchart Gardens near Victoria or investigate exotic species in Vancouver's UBC Botanical Garden and VanDusen Botanical Garden.
Looking for a unique garden experience? Admire fields of fragrant purple lavender at the Okanagan Lavender Herb Farm, wade into a seaweed garden near Sooke, or join a boat tour from Tofino to visit Cougar Annie’s garden.
