Spring is almost in full swing, and that means it’s time to start plotting more adventures. The UBC Botanical Garden is home to an abundance of flowers, plants, and the whimsical Greenheart TreeWalk.
Wander amongst the lush trees on this walk nestled in the heart of the UBC Botanical Garden.
The 310-metre-long canopy walkway and tree platforms hang from Douglas firs, cedars and grand firs. It gives visitors the unique opportunity to get a birds-eye view of the magical coastal temperate rainforest.
The garden is a must visit for locals and tourists alike, as it’s Canada’s oldest university botanical garden. It was established in 1916 and it currently measures about 110-acres in size.
Nature lovers will find peace at the garden, with it being home to over 8,000 different plants. Besides the wondrous TreeWalk, there’s an alpine garden, Asian garden, native plants garden, medicinal garden and a foods garden to explore.
