Come dazzle your senses this spring at Minter Gardens!

Nestled against 7000 foot Mt. Cheam in the lush Fraser Valley is one of the most magnificent show gardens in the world! Minter Gardens is 32 acres of floral artistry. The 11 themed gardens are designed to dazzle the senses with massive displays of colour and fragrance. Gently winding pathways progressively link each unique garden. Delightful surprises, such as Victorian topiary ladies, a giant floral peacock, Canada's largest floral flag, a living maze, an English country cottage, and beautiful waterfalls and ponds wait around every bend.

After a leisurely stroll through the Gardens, visitors can relax and enjoy: our two great restaurants, with casual dining in the Garden Café or our gourmet lunch buffet in the Trillium Restaurant served daily mid-May to September, and our newly updated Gift and Plant Shop with an excellent selection of giftware and memorabilia, as well as many plants seen throughout the Gardens.

In mid-April the Gardens are ablaze with colour and fragrance, with over 100,000 bulbs in bloom. Ever changing, Minter Gardens will dazzle your senses in every season. Come and see why we have become one of the world’s great gardens devoted to creating an inspiring and memorable experience for everyone.
