Celebrate Mother’s Day at The Glades Garden

Mother’s Day is coming around the corner once again! And, if you’re looking for a great way to treat your mom, you might want to consider taking her to the ever-popular Mother’s Day at The Glades in Surrey, BC, happening on May 12th from 10am – 4pm. Lined with beautiful flowers, a picturesque Reflection Pond, and lush, winding pathways, The Glades Garden is 5 acres of nature’s finest. Take in the sights and smells of over 2500 mature rhododendrons in full bloom – some of which are more than 20 feet tall!

The woodland garden will be buzzing, with live music on the lawn next to the Reflection Pond, as well as at the Ridge, and sandwich plates, desserts, tea and coffee available for sale for those who’d like to enjoy lunch seated in the garden.  This year, The Glades is unveiling brand new trails to new sections of the garden for even more fun & adventure! There will also be kids activities to engage and entertain young ones (rumour has it that a scavenger hunt is in the works)! Entrance into Mother’s Day at The Glades is $7 at the gate, or $5 in advance (cash-only, children under 10 are free).

Advance tickets can be purchased online here or by calling 604-501-5100.

It is recommended that you allow yourself at least one hour to enjoy the garden, although, closer to two will allow you to truly take in the tranquil beauty of this picturesque woodland setting. Please note:

  • No pets please (save assistance animals), so please keep Rover at home!
  • The event is cash-only
  • Most of the garden is wheelchair accessible, though challenging in sections of hilly terrain.

Getting There

The best route to find the garden is to turn South off of 8th Ave onto 172nd Street – the garden will be on the right hand side. Please not that there is no parking lot for the garden – all parking is roadside.  There will be volunteers helping direct traffic, and there will be room to drop-off family members before finding parking.
