Gala receptions on The Butchart Gardens’ great expanse of lawn are an elegant affair. Bordered by colourful and aromatic gardens, and with views to the water, there’s no more inspired outdoor venue. Sip cocktails, sample elegant hors d’oeuvre, then stop and smell the roses, if ever there were a place to do that, this most certainly is it.

The Wow Factor

Memories for the Making

Splashing down to dinner. A scenic floatplane journey delivers guests right to the gardens (pending group size, inquire at time of booking)

Stopping to smell the flowers — literally. There are over a million bedding plants and 900 varieties to tickle your nose with here

An elegant garden party, a group tea experience, or picnic under the stars — this garden oasis is a perfect networking location
