Here you can enjoy beautifully landscaped gardens and a visit the tropical gardens inside the MacMillan Bloedel Conservatory.

  • Independent schools nearby include Vancouver Montessori School, Vancouver Hebrew Academy, King David High School, Glen Eden School, St. Anthony of Padua school and the Daisy Academy Montessori School
