Sehenswertes & Unterhaltung



Selbst in den Städten von British Columbia ist die Natur jederzeit in greifbarer Nähe. Die britische Zeitung The Independent kürte den Stanley Park in Vancouver 2007 zu einem der „Five Best Urban Escapes in Canada“. Darüber hinaus haben Dutzende von Gemeinden in British Columbia ihre Grünflächen mithilfe des nationalen Programms „Communities in Bloom“ verschönert.

Aufgrund der langen Vegetationsperioden, der milden Temperaturen und der richtigen Niederschlagsmenge stehen die Gärten im Süden von British Columbia in voller Blüte. Spazieren Sie durch die Blütenpracht in großen Gärten wie The Butchart Gardens nahe Victoria und Minter Gardens in Chilliwack oder erleben Sie exotische Pflanzenarten im UBC Botanical Garden und dem VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver.

Sie sind auf der Suche nach einem einzigartigen Garten? Erfreuen Sie sich am Duft des Lavendels auf der Okanagan Lavender Herb Farm, waten Sie durch einen Garten voller Meeresalgen nahe Sooke oder begeben Sie sich auf eine Bootstour ab Tofino, um den Cougar Annie's Garden zu besuchen.

Walk under the world's only Canadian-Japanese hybrid walnut tree, witness the critically endangered Wollemi Pine, discover over 40 species of magnolias, and experience a plantsman's garden at its finest. Darts Hill Garden Park is 7.5 acres of rare and precious plants, many of which were planted from seeds collected from around the world.

When Edwin and Francisca Darts purchased the land in 1943, it was covered with bush, regrown after logging in the 1800s. Together, they transformed their land first into an award-winning orchard, and then into the unique garden that is Darts Hill today. The garden is the proud result of a pioneering spirit, passion, and dedication.
