While exploring Vancouver recently, everybody recommended a visit to the Botanical Gardens to us so we decided to go explore it for ourselves. The botanical gardens have two locations, the main botanical gardens and also the memorial gardens. Both are within a few minutes of each other and both capture a different style and beauty. The VanDusen Botanical Garden’s has 22 hectares of elegant landscapes with plant species representing ecosystems ranging from the Himalayas to the Mediterranean, from Louisiana swamps to the Pacific Northwest.It gives a much more natural, forest setting which I loved. A inspiration to walk around and explore. It is cherished locally and renowned internationally for their beauty and for their leadership in plant conservation, biodiversity and sustainability. Walking around, you cannot help but notice the wildlife, art, culture and beauty that surrounds you.
