A beautiful, well maintained garden without crowds. If you don't mind a smaller garden without a hefty price tag (they suggest a C$10 donation), it's worth a visit.

The garden is small but lovely. If you are in the area I'd take a look. The high te is nice but not outstanding. Make a reservation.

Unfortunately I visited the gardens about two or three weeks too late to see the rhododendrons at their best, but it was still a lovely peaceful place to visit. Afternoon tea was wonderful and the view of the gardens from up there gave a new...More

I go often to the tearoom in this jewel of a garden. It is a great place to meet friends, have lunch or afternoon tea followed by a stroll through the winding paths. You might catch a glimpse of the turtles in the pond and...More
