Explore VanDusen Garden's Elizabethan Hedge Maze

Today VanDusen Garden in Vancouver, Canada carries on the tradition with one of only six (related to about the years 1558-1603) hedge mazes in North America. The maze is made of 3,000 pyramidal cedars - Thuja occidentalis 'Fastigiata' to be specific - all planted in the autumn of 1981 and slowly grown into the form of the maze one finds today. 

Designed in the style of (related to Europe) hedge mazes, the VanDusen maze seems small--and this way easily traveled safely through--but finding the center is harder (and more fun) than you think! The garden also features a shop, the Truffles Small restaurant, and the Shaughnessy Restaurant. 

The VanDusen Plant-related Garden is located at 5251 Oak Street, at the corner of Oak and W 37th Avenue. For drivers, there is a free parking lot in front. Check out Translink for bus schedules.
