Q:

What are your "special" days when we won't be able to use our Groupons?

Adrian H.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

I would suggest contacting them directly at (604) 822-4208 for more information for dates of special events they are hosting.

A:

Hi Sammy - when we have large scale special events at the Garden groupons are not redeemable. The good news is that there are no special events scheduled at this time at the garden between now and when the groupon expires. If we add any special events they will be listed here on our website: http://botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/events

Q:

My family has 2 adults & 1 senior, but the family package is for 2 adults & 4 children.Can I buy the famiy package for 2 adults & 1 senior?

joyce y.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

Hi Joyce, this groupon is specifically has options for one adult, or family which is 2 adults and up to 4 children/youth so unfortunately this will not work for your situation. Your best option is to but the two adults @ $10 each and then but a concession ticket at our gatehouse for $15 ($15.75 including tax). This will mean you will still receive a discount of $20 off of your ticket prices (two adults and one concession regularly costs $57.75 including tax).

Q:

Hello We are having visitors from Calif., and we think this would be a good site to see.. Could you please tell me the hours of operation ?days , and is the walk weather permitting?? On the walk, do you have to be in good physical health.?? What do you see from the canopy walk ?? Looking for a reply Gordon..

Gordon W.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

The walkway is open everyday from 10 am - 4 pm (you must arrive before 3:30 for access before it closes at 4 pm). The walkway will close in cases of extreme weather (lightening, high wind etc) so please check our website before heading out if there is any questionable weather. You can find our hours of operation on our website here: http://www.botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/hours-and-directions To go on the walkway you do need to be able to walk confidently on swaying bridges. It is not overly physically demanding but does require balance and comfort walking by yourself. From the walkway you will see the forest from a new perspective. You will see plants and sometimes animals that live in the forest canopy and get up close and personal with some very large native trees.

Q:

I plan to come with 2 adults and 2 children 4 and under... Would I need to buy the family one, or can I just buy for 2 adults since 6 under is free

Brittany  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

Since this groupon is for self-guided access to our walkway you can buy for two adults since the two children under 6 are free.

Q:

I was just wondering if this just includes the walkway or also visits of the garden? On the website, I think that it is $ 24 for all 3.

Rebecca T.  asked on  May 15, 2013

A:

Hi Rebecca, this groupon includes the Greenheart Canopy Walkway and UBC Botanical Garden (the walkway is actually located within the botanical garden so you will be within it while you travel the walkway. You are invited to come early, or stay after your walkway experience to explore everything the walkway has to over. It does not include our sister garden Nitobe Memorial Garden. The prices on our website are plus tax. So regular admission for the walkway and the botanical garden is $20 plus tax for a total value of $21. The $24 option on your website you mention includes Nitobe, which is not part of this particular groupon. It only costs an additional $6 to visit Nitobe while you are out on the UBC campus though. Hope that answers your question!
