The Minter Gardens lie nestled beneath the 7,000 feet peak of Mount Cheam in the City of Chilliwack in Canada. Developed under the patronage of Brian Minter, it is one of the most spectacular show gardens in the world. Opened in May 1980, the garden was designed as an international visitor's attraction.
Within its 32 acres area is housed 11 themed gardens, floral topiary sculptures and designs, waterfalls and aviaries. During spring, the garden becomes a display ground of numerous tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, lilies and rhododendrons. During summer, annuals are diligently arranged to form a beautiful display of a plethora of colours.
A Peacock and a Canadian flag are depicted by tapestries of annuals. Flowers and green leaves provide a sharp contrast against the snow-capped mountain. Beautiful perennials adorn the beauty of the garden during the autumn season. Tourists visiting the garden can also dine amidst nature at its café, dining and banquet room.
