About This Park

The David Douglas Botanical Garden at the University of Northern British Columbia is one of the finest botanical gardens in northern BC. Maintained by the David Douglas Botanical Garden Society, the Garden is an aesthetically pleasing assortment of plants and flowers native to northern BC, a bubbling brook leading to a serine pond, and artfully arranged selections of local river rocks. UNBC faculty, staff, and students can often be found recharging their batteries near the creek, which is straddled by the I.K. Barber Bridge at the centre of the Gardens.

This is a gem of a display garden. The creators have made an effort to make it as accessible as possible.
