VanDusen Botanical Garden once a full-length golf course that was slated to be developed for housing in the 1970s was saved through the efforts of group of citizens and the Vancouver Parks Board. The project was funded equally by the City of Vancouver, the Province and Mr. W.J. VanDusen.

These are all displayed in a beautiful setting among lawns, ponds and rock work with views of the north-shore mountains beyond.
