UBC Botanical Garden information
You'll find a giant collection of rhododendrons, a fascinating apothecary plot and a winter green space of off-season bloomers in this 28-hectare complex of themed gardens. Save time for the attraction's Greenheart TreeWalk , which lifts visitors 17m above the forest floor on a 308m guided eco tour. A combined botanical garden and walkway ticket costs $20.
Check the garden's website calendar before your visit: free tours are available on select days and they provide a great introduction to the various garden areas. And make sure you drop into the gift shop before you leave for its well-curated collection of green-thumbed books and trinkets. Here in October? The annual UBC Apple Fest is also staged right here; it's the highlight of the year for the kind of locals and visitors who love Cox's Orange Pippins.
