Fantastic floral displays cover 22 hectares (55 acres) on Vancouver Island. Strolling the gardens will take two hours, after which you can have lunch at one of the three restaurants. Pets are welcome in the gardens, but not in the buildings. Pets must be on short leashes and kept under control. Please note: The Fireworks displays on Saturday evenings through the summer are very loud and distressing to most animals. We ask pet owners NOT to bring their pets to the Fireworks shows.
