Well-known botanical garden spread over 22 hectares & featuring eateries & seasonal entertainment.
These internationally acclaimed gardens were created after Robert Butchart exhausted the limestone quarry near his Tod Inlet home, about 22km (14 miles) from Victoria. His wife, Jenny, gradually landscaped the deserted eyesore into the resplendent Sunken Garden, opening it for public display in 1904. Over the years, a Rose Garden, Italian Garden, and Japanese Garden were added. The gardens -- still in the family -- now display more than a million plants throughout the year. -Wikipedia
