MARS Mother’s Day Weekend Garden Tour

MARS 29th Annual Mother’s Day Weekend Garden Tour


The second weekend in May is the annual MARS Mother’s Day Garden Tour, where the public gets to peek into the finest gardens in the Qualicum Beach / Parksville area!

Each year, our intrepid team seeks out unique and outstanding gardens within easy driving distance of Parksville and Qualicum Beach.  (If Mom’s a garden enthusiast, a MARS Garden Tour ticket makes the perfect Mother’s Day gift!)

In addition to their natural beauty, many gardens will also feature artists as well as Master Gardeners to answer your questions.

This is a self-guided tour — you can visit the gardens in any order you choose, and tour them at your own pace!

Bonus:  Present your MARS Garden Tour ticket at Milner Gardens & Woodland and receive a discounted admission to Milner Gardens.
