We’ve told you about this rose garden at the top of Burnaby Mountain before, and we definitely recommend you check it out before the cold weather settles in. It’s difficult to see from the parking lot of Burnaby Mountain Park, but if you make your way behind the washrooms you’ll be greeted by a beautiful rose garden. There are benches to sit and enjoy the flowers and an archway with flowers growing up the sides. The recent heat hasn’t been kind to the roses, but there are still some flowers around to make your trip worthwhile. From the rose garden, you can explore the rest of the park.

Address: 100 Centennial Way, Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area

One of Burnaby’s prettiest gardens is Century Gardens, located beside Ceperley House at the Burnaby Art Gallery. According to the City of Burnaby, it’s also one of the best places to enjoy the beauty of rhododendrons. There’s also some wonderful art to check out around the garden.
Address: 6344 Deer Lake Ave.

Millennium Garden

This garden can be easy to miss but it’s definitely one worth visiting if you’re at Burnaby City Hall. Millennium Garden was created to mark the beginning of a new millennium. It’s a wonderful place to sit, enjoy some coffee, read a book, and bask in the peacefulness of this garden oasis.
Address: 4949 Canada Way

While these aren’t technically gardens, the eco-sculptures take everything you find in a large garden space and condense it into some very cool structures. From owls to bees, eco-sculptures can be found all over Burnaby, and the city even has a helpful map so you can find them all.

The Garden at the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre

Located right outside the museum grounds is a peaceful garden oasis. Featuring Japanese maples, a pond, plenty of topiary, and colourful blooms, this is a great place to visit after spending some time at the museum. Another great way to experience the garden is by visiting  the Nikkei Garden Farmers Market, which runs on the second and fourth Sundays of the month until October from 10am to 2pm
Address: 6688 Southoaks Cres.

Eagles Estate Heritage Garden

Letter to Editor: Highway 1 overpass not a “sincere or realistic” project to support safe cycling

"As an avid, and I do mean avid cyclist who rides throughout the Lower Mainland it stuns me to see money being used so unwisely on such a project when so many other cycling gaps are glaringly obvious."
