The Greenheart Canopy Walkway is a 1,010-foot-long aerial trail system suspended 50 feet in the air. The walkway weaves through remote areas of the treetops above the native coastal temperate rainforest at the end of the David C. Lam Asian Garden, which flourishes with flora such as western red cedars, douglas firs, and western hemlocks and fauna such as bald eagles, coyotes, and woodpeckers.Visitors are invited to explore the Greenheart Canopy at their own pace as self-guided guests.

Canopy walkway guests should wear comfortable footwear and plan on walking the entire time. Open-toed shoes, such as sandals and flip-flops, are not allowed on the walkway. Guests should also keep both hands free to hold on to the canopy guide ropes. Small children must be able to walk on their own or be carried in an approved child backpack or carrier; carrying children in one’s arms or in any other fashion is not permitted. Strollers, walkers, and wheelchairs are also not permitted on the walkway.

UBC Botanical Garden

The vibrant blooms and lush foliage of approximately 50,000 plants greet visitors' eyes as they wander along the outdoor paths of the UBC Botanical Garden, the recipient of a National Tourism Award. Guest are encouraged to make small talk with plants on display, which include international varietals such as Asian maple trees, alpine and montane flora, more than 400 species of rhododendrons, and vascular plants from the rainforest.

the tree walk was a once in a lifetime opportunity and was beautiful

The maps we very difficult for us to decipher - we spent at least an hour of the 3 hours we spent walking in circles. And it was beautiful, my limitations walking would not affect most people and I liked being "lost" with my husband. Ha! We only went through the lower portion of the gardens and - of course - the Tree Walk! The tree walk is a must. I am disabled from a severe injury to my left ankle and leg and I had no trouble handling it at all - and it's such a thrill to be walking amongst the trees. The gardens are absolutely magical; at many moments throughout walking the pathways - it brought to mind the scenery from the film Avatar. We took a jillion pictures and truly enjoyed the romance and mystery of the little we were able to get through.
