The cafe had very nice food for an attraction cafeteria. Close to a bus stop if thats your mode of transportation.
The grounds were perfectly kept, if we lived there we would definitely become members. Its a great way to spend some time in Vancouver
After visiting Butchart Gardens in Victoria last week and being disappointed it was a real treat to visit here yesterday. It was a last minute decision to go but we are glad we did, much better than anticipated. Stunning autumn colours, many interesting areas, ferns,...More
The gardens are really nice, relaxing and you can spend a long time here. But it was little confusing to navigate yourself in even with the map the roads did not really lead where they were supposed to. Took us a while to get to...More
If you are interested in gardening, horticulture and plants in general and wanting a respite from the drone of Vancouver city, then take the # 7 Oak trolley from Hornby Street and for $1.90 you can be at the entrance to a wonderful botanical garden....More

Thank you for providing feedback about your experience. We would recommend visiting during the month of May when many of the colourful and showy flowers are blooming.
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. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the
city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
