Butchart Gardens

Butchart Gardens is Victoria's most famous and popular attraction!

As you make your way around the gardens, you'll walk through intimate stone paths and streams lined with colorful arrays of flowers and trees. The gardens adjusts its floral displays to suit the season so it is spectacular anytime you visit.

The Butchart Gardens has been designed to please the eye and generally delight the senses. It could be the pale green of emerging leaves, complemented by brilliant pink or white flowers of trees...the dazzling bedding plants framed by sweeping lawns, with the treat to the nose of a waft of a thousand scents of summer...or the multi-colored leaves in the fall. Approximately 35 minutes from downtown, The Butchart Gardens features over 55 acres of meticulously manicured grounds. Spectacular blossoms and fragrances ensure that this will be an experience you will not soon forget.
