We were parking the car en route to visiting the nearby Museum of Anthropology and found this beautiful garden on the roof of the parking garage. The smell from the rose blooms was almost overpowering, the gardens beautifully laid out and the views of the...More

As a botanical garden, it's very nice, but not the most impressive. Isn't as educational as others and is mostly focused on trees (not so much flowers or other plant types), so it's not super pretty. There are a tons of paths though so I...More

The flowers were not in full blossom when I was there. Only a few flowers to see. The weather was hot so the place wasn't teeming with tourists either.

Hi Rob - you were probably at the UBC Rose Garden, not UBC Botanical Garden! We are located down the road on Southwest Marine Drive & 16th Avenue. Hope you can pay us a visit.
