UBC Garden

UBC Garden, located in Vancouver, British Columbia, is Canada's oldest university botanical garden.  It was founded in 1916.  Today it covers over 100 acres, and contains about 12,000 plants from temperate regions all over the world.

There are several gardens within the garden.  These include the Alpine Garden, Asian Garden, Carolinian Forest, Food Garden, and Native garden.  Visitors will see magnolias, rhododendrons, dogwood, roses, and a plethora of Alpine flora.

The garden is open daily from 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM.  The best times to visit are April and May, or September and October.  Cost of admission is $8.00 for adults and $4.00 for children.


  1. It's so gorgeous up there. I'll bet those gardens are very pretty and soothing to walk through.

  2. I bet their Carolinian forest is tick-free!

  4. looks lovely. Canada is a friendly treasure to the north. I need to explore more of it. All it takes is money and time....alas, work gets in the way.

    1. When I lived in Ohio, it was a little easier to get up to Canada. There's a lot to see there!

  5. I love Vancouver and its gardens.
    Be well, Sherry.

  7. Hey Sherry,

    Wow, I've been there many a time. Thanks for this and reminding me it's time to get back to Vancouver :)
