Milner Gardens

Milner Gardens & Woodland is a seaside garden in Qualicum Beach on the east coast of Vancouver Island, BC and one of best attractions in Qualicum Beach/Parksville. This setting is like no other. Visited by Queen Elizabeth, Prince Phillip, Prince Charles, and Princess Diana, the 60 acres of woodland, ten acres of garden surrounding a heritage house was the dream of one woman, Veronica Milner. Veronica gathered plants from the temperate zones of the world, including a significant collection of Rhododendrons. It was her vision that created this incredible combination of garden and old growth forest.
