• Horticulture Centre of the Pacific


There’s a reason that Victoria is called “The City of Gardens” …. we’ve got a lot of them!

Victoria is known for it’s variety and abundance of flowers and plants of all kinds.  If gardening is your passion, a great place to visit while you’re here is the Horticulture Centre of the Pacific – or HPC – (formerly called Glendale Gardens).

A Garden for Gardeners Since 1979

  • Nine acres of spectacular gardens showcase over 10,000 varieties of plants, the majority of which are labelled
  • Thirty-four different areas are designed and planted to demonstrate landscaping techniques suitable for the Pacific Northwest
  • Some gardens are cared for by local clubs including: Heather, Rhododendron, Lily and Hardy Plant
  • Year-round interest includes the renowned Doris Page Winter Garden and the Takata Japanese Garden
  • Private tours, group tours and guided school tours will happily be arranged
  • Horticulture Library with over 2,500 landscaping and garden-related books and magazines

I've lived in Victoria over 30 years. I've travelled the world but I still believe that no other city beats Victoria for it's sheer beauty and variety of activities available year round. I sincerely want to help others explore and enjoy this great city - and hopefully make you want to come back again and again!
