About Mission - Minter Gardens
Located in the heart of the Fraser Valley, only 45 minutes drive from Mission, is one of the most beautiful gardens in the world! Centuries ago, a massive mountain slide suddenly swept over the fertile lands of the eastern Fraser Valley. This rock fall pushed north across the Fraser River and ended its westerly flow at the area which is now Minter Gardens. The unique land formations which were created left an area unsuitable for crop farming, but early settlers found it ideal for raising cattle and other animals. Tall native specimen trees added to the charm of the location and thousands of wild Geraniums, Columbine, Roses and Bleeding Hearts added a finishing touch to this magnificent setting. It was this site which Brian and Faye Minter first saw on Christmas Day, 1977. The topography was so unique and the setting against 7,000 foot Mt. Cheam so picturesque, instantly one of those once-in-a-lifetime dreams was born: to create one of the most beautiful gardens in the world! Their dream became reality in May of 1980. The 11 individual gardens reflect the seasons at Minter Gardens magnificently. Spring opens in dramatic fashion with a parade of colour to dazzle the senses.
