What Canadian city is known as the “City of Gardens”?
Victoria, British Columbia – The gardens that first lent Victoria — the capital of Canada’s British Columbia province — its nickname are the Butchart Gardens. In the early 1900s, Jennie Butchart began transforming her family’s industrial land into the now world-renowned garden, which spans 55 acres and is home to more than 900 varieties of plants. More than 1 million people visit the gardens each year, and they were named a National Historic Site of Canada in 2004. The Butchart Gardens may be the original, but they aren’t the only blooms in the city: There is also Beacon Hill Park, Abkhazi Garden, and the Government House Public Gardens, among others.:
