Vancouver's Living Museum of Plants

A single trip to VanDusen Botanical Garden may spoil you for any other outdoor garden for the rest of your life. Located on 55-acres of the old Shaughnessy Golf Course, the expansive garden has been open to the public since 1975.

The location provides a temperate rain forest atmosphere which caters to the preservation and propagation of over 11,500 flora varieties representing almost 7,500 plant families and over 250,000 individual plants.

The mild climate allows year-round blooming for plants native to other areas across the world. Statues, fountains, and decorative structures relating to species and their origin help make the garden a true showplace. Visit VanDusen's Library for the most extensive collection of public access botanical research in Canada.
