Decided to visit these Gardens and very glad we did --- the network of paths and boardwalks lead you through 12 acres of gardens, forests and shoreline in a relaxing, informative stroll. Interesting, original and unique sculptures and art work by Michael Dennis are highlighted...More

We took the family there to hang out on a magical evening of entertainment, light show of lanterns and delicious local treats from vendors.

Beautiful place and informative. They did a nice job forming a nice and cozy ambiance. If your lucky you might see some bears.

We were staying in a hotel near the Tofino Botanical Gardens. Figured it would be an easy walk around the gardens. Most of the paths were fine but few were slippery paths and not all had hand rails. I am in my late 60s and...More
