The Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park offers a beautiful nine acre setting with several unique features such as the arbour.
Located on nine acres situated on the edge of the Pacific Ocean is the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park. This beautifully manicured garden was once a private residence, and today, is open to the public as a place to enjoy and explore. Today the gardens offer some of the region's most rare and exotic flora including magnolias, rhododendrons, several species of oak and pine, London Planes and Atlas and Deodora cedars. The park also contains a collection of eclectic structures including arbours, sculptures, a root cellar, a tea house and Filberg Lodge.
Built in 1929, Filberg Lodge was built as a summer cottage for R.J. (Bob) Filberg, the manager and superintendent of the Comox Logging and Railway Company, his wife Florence and their two children, Mary and Robert. By 1935 the family has moved permanently into their unique home, adding several unique buildings to the site over the years. After R.J.'s death in 1977, the property was bequeathed to the Vancouver Foundation and opened to the public as a park.
Some of the most popular 'residents' of Filberg Park are the deer which wander throughout the grounds. Normally skittish creatures, the deer are well adapted to visitors and roam freely throughout the nine acre parkland. In the summer months they are joined by a range of animals at the Hands on Farm.
Open throughout the year, the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park is the perfect place to spend a few hours or even the whole day. Wander through its nine acres of gardens, explore its unique buildings (including the lodge), have a cup of tea and a sandwich at the Tea House and meet some of the animals which make their home within the Park. Also, visit during the annual Filberg Festival which is held to help raise money for the upkeep of the Park.
