Easy walking and a little gem of a garden, really unexpected surprise! Take a picnic lounge around and even on a windy, blustery evening it was very quiet and calm in here. It would probably be quite the heat trap on a sunny calm day....More

This little park is like an oasis in the area. The flowers and shrubs and paths are inviting and lovely. We were glad we found it.

We went for an early morning walk through the gardens that were close to our hotel. It was so beautiful!! A large variety of flowers and trees and shrubs lit by the early morning sun. Definitely go here while in Prince Rupert :)

Close to the middle of town and looked a bit seedy when you enter through the tunnel but worth it. Not a huge garden but well laid out and beautifull colours blending so well. Plenty of seating to sit and take in the different flowers,...More

Chose to walk through the garden. It is very well maintained with beautiful flowers. Enjoyed seeing the variety of flowers that will grow in this part of Canada. It is just a short walk and you should walk through if you are in the area.
