The city's favorite green space, this 22-hectare, 255,000-plant idyll is a web of paths weaving through many small, specialized gardens: the Rhododendron Walk blazes with color in spring, while the Korean Pavilion is a focal point for a fascinating Asian collection. Great views of the Vancouver cityscape add photo-ready vistas. Free tours are offered daily at 2pm April to October.

In addition, there's a fun Elizabethan maze and an intriguing menagerie of marble sculptures here. VanDusen is also one of Vancouver's top Christmastime destinations, complete with thousands of twinkling fairy lights illuminating the dormant plant life. Check the attraction's website for the dates and also to see what's in bloom seasonally.
