The Stanley Park Community Garden is a small garden that it maintained and run by a number of locals from the West End neighbourhood.
This garden is located at the edge of Stanley Park next to the West End neighbourhood.
Individuals must apply and be approved for a plot of land to use in this garden. We heard it takes many years to get in!
This garden is unique because it does not allow people to grow vegetables because of the Wild Animals in Stanley Park. There are squirrels, skunks, coyotes, and many more animals in Stanley Park. We do think that some people grow edible flowers though!
A few people have put up pollinator and bird houses. There are frequently many bees gathering nector from the many flowers in this garden.
The flowers in this garden are very beautiful and have so many different colors. We are astounded by the diversity whenever we walk in the garden.
There are a few benches and seats for you to sit on to smell and enjoy the flowers!
If you love flowers, we highly recommend a walk through this garden. It only takes a few minutes to walk through the garden if you don't stop, but we recommend that you stop and enjoy it!
