Gardens & Parks in Victoria, B.C.

garden destination 2Victoria has long been known as the "City of Gardens." With our mild climate, gardening is a year round passion which has resulted in an abundant array of gardens world-renowned for their beauty and individual charm. That's why the International Garden Tourism Network awarded Victoria with the International Garden Destination of the Year award in 2015. Take a garden tour and experience it for yourself! 

As early as February, blooms spring up throughout the city while most of Canada is still covered under a blanket of snow. We also have a hanging basket tradition that spans over 75 years. Hanging baskets are placed on downtown lampposts every June to signal the start of summer.
