UBC Botanical Garden

Immerse yourself in the world of wild-collected plants at UBC Botanical Garden! Garden highlights include internationally recognized collections of magnolias and maples. Stroll through our impressive Asian garden with over 400 kinds of rhododendrons, travel the continents in our alpine garden, explore our native rainforest garden, head back in time in our traditional physic garden overflowing with herbs, discover food growing techniques in the food garden and much more. No visit is complete without a visit to our Shop in the Garden and Garden Centre.

Greenheart TreeWalk

Discover your adventurous spirit as you navigate suspended walkways and tree platforms high above the forest floor. A  unique and fun experience on the Greenheart TreeWalk swaying bridges amongst the treetops, the walkway is a delight for kids and adults alike.  

 Nitobe Memorial Garden

The Nitobe Memorial Garden is a traditional Japanese stroll and tea garden designed in the memory of Dr. Inazo Nitobe whose wish was to foster global peace and create a bridge of cultural understanding between Japan and the rest of the World.
