The University of British Columbia situated on the edge of Point Grey, Vancouver is well known for its multitude of plants with its renowned Nitobe Gardens and UBC Gardens. Many lesser known gardens are also scattered throughout the Campus, one of the most stunning being the UBC Rose Garden on the Northern edge of the campus. Its elevated viewing area overlooks the majestic snow-capped mountains and the ocean as well as offering beautiful blooms to admire through the rose season typically occurring June to September. A romantic spot (including many weddings in the summer months), the Rose Garden is visited throughout the year.

Located on the tip of Point Grey situated on the cliffs above the Strait of Georgia is the University of British Columbia. This sprawling campus is one of Canada's most beautiful with large pathways, grassy areas and when not obscured by the forests surrounding the site, views of the surrounding mountains, ocean and cityscape.

One such place on the University of British Columbia grounds is the Rose Garden located on the north-westerly tip of Point Grey. With its elevated design, this classical rose garden overlooks the North Shore offering a place for students and visitors to the campus an opportunity to explore dozens of rose species in a variety of colours.

The University of British Columbia Rose Garden was originally opened in 1949 but was closed and relocated to its current site in 1997 due to the construction of the nearby Chan Centre for performing Arts. The new garden encompasses over 450 plants, an arbour and blooms from June to September.

With its stunning flowers and beautiful locale it is unsurprising students have voted it one of the most romantic areas on Campus. One of the campus' smallest gardens it is never the less one of its most visited along with the nearby Nitobe Gardens and UBC Botanical Gardens.
