Vancouver is known for its abundance of green space; the city’s many gardens are a testament to its love of nature and are often easily accessible from downtown via walking, biking or transit.

The year-round mild climate, plenty of rain and summer sunshine all contribute to the growth of fragrant flowers, leafy plants, and towering trees.

Many of Vancouver’s gardens are recognized across Canada: VanDusen Botanical Garden and UBC Botanical Garden were both listed in “The Ten Best Public Gardens in Canada” in 2008 by Canadian Geographic Travel magazine.
