The city of Chilliwack comes alive as its gardens blossom and bloom throughout the seasons. Wander elegant landscapes, take in a variety of flowers or be inspired at a garden centre.
Minter Gardens is considered the crown jewel among Chilliwack's gardens and city parks. Located near Exit 135 off the Trans-Canada Highway, these privately operated, 13ha/32ac show gardens are sometimes compared to the world-famous Butchart Gardens in Victoria. Created by passionate gardener Brian Minter, Minter Gardens opened in 1980 and attracts more than 100,000 visitors a year.
Against the backdrop of 2,130m/7,000ft Mt. Cheam, wander through Minter Gardens to discover 12 different themed gardens, including an enormous rose garden (there are more than 750 rose plants at Minter Gardens), a lake garden, scent garden, children's garden, arbour garden, and formal garden.
