There are 3 gardens to explore, a restaurant to dine at, a lagoon to admire, and a conservatory to visit! There's no charge to visit the gardens. One of my favourite places to relax and take in some nature without leaving the city

Vancouver's second crown jewel of parks. The botanical garden, so lush, is truly enchanted. Enough said. You have to see it for yourself. Hard to believe it was once, long long ago, an open pit coal mine.

I was surprised by the wide range of things to see here.. including the conservatory where there are many rare birds. A good place for a hike and a picnic. The highest point in Vancouver is here and you can dine there at the seasons in the park restaurant.

It's a nice park with a few paths where you can have a nice walk. It's not large enough to spend more than an hour but the view from the top is stunning and right on the skyline of Downtown. The sunset is also nice from there. A really good expensive restaurant sirs at the top and there is pay parking next to it.

Iconic Vancouver park for scenery and weddings. The sunken garden is delightful although season-dependent for blooming flowers. The waterfall used to be gushing but now just trickles. The wedding pavilion is newer and a cute place for marital gatherings!
