VanDusen Botanical Garden is celebrating the first anniversary of its award-winning Visitor Centre that is self-sufficient, carbon neutral, and has LEED Platinum certification. The Visitor Centre has meeting space, the garden’s gift shop, and Truffles Cafe. It’s your first stop on your self-guided tour of the 55 acre garden that has over 50 points of interest.
Perennials, oaks, beeches, the Korean Pavilion, Canadian Heritage Garden, Meditation Garden, the maze, Sino-Himalayan Garden, fern dell, conifers, Japanese Maples, bamboos, yews, the rock garden, Livingston Lake, Heron Lake, and Shaughnessy Lake are all attractions.
