|The gardens are open to visitors from 8-8 Summer, 8-6 Fall and Spring, and 8-4 in Winter. Occasionally in winter, after snowfall or freezing rain, the entrance gates remain closed until the entry road is safe to travel on.
Admission is free, however, the Friends of the Gardens non-profit society suggests a $5 donation per person to help pay our gardeners to sustain and improve the gardens.
Agriculture Canada accepts bookings for rental of garden facilities for weddings, picnics, etc. Please phone 250-494-7711 for more information.
