This is by far the best light show that I have seen - the creativity, the mix, spread and combination of colors was truly magnificent to behold! Fortunately and unfortunately for us it was raining a bit so there was not a lot of folks...More
Grandparents, parents and new baby in tow. After paying the admission we bought a picnic lunch which included for loan a basket and blanket. The food was Delicious and the surroundings beautiful. They have a lovely maze to wonder through as well.
I've been to the Van Dusen Botanical Garden several times and I still have the feeling I haven't seen it all. So many species! It is a great program for spring or summer afternoons. The Halloween decoration and the winter lights make it a must...More

Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature.
