Description

The 2017 East Vancouver Garden Tour is on Father's Day, Sunday, June 18th. Like other years, this year's tour will be walkable, and we are lining up some delightful gardens for your touring pleasure!

Our home base is at Figaro's Garden Centre (1896 Victoria Drive at 3rd Avenue).

(To avoid disappointment, we recommend that you get your tickets ahead of time. The tour is very popular, and, although we will have some cash-only tickets available at Figaro's on the day of the tour, tickets are limited and we have been known to sell out.)

On the day of the tour, you start at Figaro's, check in, pick up your tour map, enjoy coffee, juice, and goodies (by donation), and then head off to the gardens.


The tour runs from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., but this is not an event you need to come to right on time. We often get a big rush of people right at 10:00, but there's no need to hurry. You can come and go as you please. You'll see exactly the same gardens if you get started at 11:00 or noon or 1:00 or even as late as 2:00! (Do, however, make sure you leave yourself enough time to see all the gardens! We don't recommend starting the tour after 2:00.)

You could, for example, pick up your tour map at 11:00, go visit a few gardens, have a leisurely lunch on Commerical Drive, and then come back to see the rest of the gardens after lunch. Do, however, plan on being done by 4:00!

Important: Sorry, but most gardens are not stroller- or wheelchair-accessible, children must be 12 years or older or babes in arms, and pets are not allowed. Also, unless you get the gardeners' permission, photos are not allowed.

People who attend the tour will get a one-time 20% discount at Figaro's, starting on the day of the tour and running through July 1st (Canada Day). Also, you may want to get on the Figaro's e-mail list; if you do, they will let you know about special seasonal discounts and sales for their regular customers. To get on their list, just e-mail info@figarosgarden.ca, and let them know.
