VanDusen Botanical Garden is a 55-acre oasis in the heart of Vancouver with over 7,500 plant species and varieties from around the world! Spot and photograph local wildlife, find your way through an Elizabethan hedge maze, unwind in a serene setting, dine on the patios of Truffles Cafe or Shaughnessy Restaurant, or browse the garden-themed gift shop. VanDusen has something for everyone to enjoy!
The Garden's multi-award winning LEED Platinum Visitor Centre was named Most Sustainable Building of the Year in 2014. Shaped like an orchid when viewed from above, its organic lines echo the way nature and conservation have been considered at every turn.
Guardians of the Garden: Bee Strong Challenge
March 12 to April 5
Spring is a time of regeneration in the garden when plants and pollinators demonstrate their resilience after enduring harsh winters. Just like you have shown your resilience this past year, our pollinators continue to thrive and work hard to provide food for living things on the planet.
Help us build a kinder environment for our hardworking pollinators by becoming a VanDusen Guardian of the Garden. Join us this spring for the Bee Strong Challenge to learn more about our pollinator friends, and how we can do our part to protect them. Complete the Bee Strong Challenge and collect your Bee Strong badge and reward for your hard work!
Important note The Guardians of the Garden Bee Strong Challenge is an add-on activity. Both an admission ticket and the add-on ticket are required at point of entry to participate and collect a prize.
