The Glades Woodland Garden is one of the City of Surrey’s two feature gardens. It is a beautiful 15-acre property situated in South Surrey featuring over 3,500 mature rhododendrons, azaleas, and companion plants. Some of the rhododendrons are more than 6 metres (20 feet) tall and are ablaze in colour in the spring.
The garden also contains a superb collection of fine trees, many of which are now designated as heritage trees. The property has a gated entrance, gathering spaces, a new parking lot, and washrooms. Make sure you wear sturdy shoes during your visit as the pathways are bark mulch. The garden does not have wheelchair access.
The Glades Woodland Garden is located at 457 172 Street. It is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from May 6 to June 25, including the Mother’s Day weekend.
