"WORLD CLASS SHOW GARDEN" ..............

This is how they advertise Minter Gardens, and they are not wrong.
Through my eyes, they were FANTASTIC!

I think they are just as good as the famous "Butchart Gardens" on Vancouver Island.
They are both, very different types of gardens.

These gardens are located near Mt. Cheam.
There are 12 themed gardens with massive displays of artistic floral designs. [ A Peacock done in flowers, A floral clock & others] Waterfalls, streams, Fragrant garden, Maze, Fern garden, Alpine garden, Duck pond, Rose & Formal garden, just to name a few,.............
check the website for more of what there is to see. The website will also tell you what is in flower at different months of the year. There a little Cottages, and a beautiful chapel, what an ideal location for a Wedding

It was wonderful, very well done, and easy to walk around.
All major pathways in Minter Gardens are wheelchair accessible. They do have a limited number of manual wheelchairs available, free of charge, on a first come, first borrowed basis
