Nitobe Gardens and UBC Botanical Gardens

by hazyartist

Hello,
I will be visiting Canada this August from Spain and will be staying in Abbotsford. Can anyone tell me how to get from Abbotsford to the Gardens? I know that I can take a bus to Vancouver but I don't know where to get off to continue on to the Gardens. On the internet, I read about the UBC loop but am not sure how to get to it and how far into Vancouver I should go before transferring to a city bus that will take me either to the loop or straight to UBC, or are they the same thing?
any help would be appreciated.
thank you,
Elaine

Can't help with buses, but we walked from where we did a harbour cruise to the gardens and went to the Aquarium. Didn't seem very far.

Busses from Abbotsford to UBC would be a long trip - several hours.

The easiest would be to take Greyhound from Abbotsford to the bus depot in Vancouver which is right by the Main Street Station (skytrain station) and then according to translink, this is the fastest way by city bus.

Travelling From: MAIN STREET STATION, MAIN ST @ TERMINAL AV, VANCOUVER
Travelling To: NITOBE MEMORIAL GARDENS, LOWER MALL, UBC


Step by Step Trip Detail


Departing From: - WESTBOUND E 2 AV AT MAIN ST
On Route: "84 UBC"

Travelling To: - UBC LOOP BAY 3


Transfer At: - UBC LOOP BAY 15
On Route: "C20 MARINE DRIVE VIA TOTEM PARK"

Arriving At: - NORTHBOUND NW MARINE DR AT NITOBE MEMORIAL

I hope this helps. It would be much easier and faster to drive there.

UBC is not within walking distance of Downtown Vancouver.

The 84 does not stop anywhere near the Central Station that houses the Greyhound bus terminal. Once you arrive in Vancouver walk out of the terminal, look slightly ahead and to the left and you will see the Skytrain Station. Go to the Skytrain Station and take the Westbound train to Waterfront. That is the end of the line. Once you leave the train walk out the main entrance and you will find a bus stop for the 44UBC, it is an express bus with fewer stops. This will take you to UBC where you may transfer. As a retired transit supervisor for the company I can tell you this is the easiest way to go.

One other thought to my post above.. If you don't wish to travel through the downtown area to catch the 44UBC, you can take the Eastbound Skytrain, whatever train comes along first, one stop to Broadway Station. Leave the station and as you exit you will be on Broadway and you will see a bus stop right in front of the entrance for the 99B Line which also is an express bus to UBC. By the way, the ticket you purchase at the Skytrain station, cost is $2.50 and that ticket will take you all the way to your destination.

One more thing, another option would be to take the bus from Abbotsford to the West Coast Express in Mission, and take the train to Waterfront Station and then you would follow the directions in YVRDaves answer. This would work if you were going to the gardens on a weekday. The Westcoast Express doesn't run on weekends.

Sorry, YVR' answer.

Your replies have been most helpful. I appreciate you taking the time to explain things so clearly. Thank you very much.

Re: Nitobe Gardens and UBC Botanical Gardens

by hazyartist

Thank you. Every piece of information helps. It seems to me that if you went to the Aquarium then you were in Stanley Park. This helps in the orientation.

Thank you Catherine. You have been most helpful and very concise. I really appreciate.

Travel Tips for Vancouver

The Marine Building and "The Vancouver Style"

by steveston78

One of the finest art deco buildings anywhere is The Marine Building, located near the foot of Burrard Street between Hastings and Cordova. Built in 1930, and designed by the local firm McCarter & Nairne, the building must be seen during a regular work day, so that the visitor can see the incredible lobby. Designed like a cathedral, the floor, walls, ceiling and elevator doors are all adorned with images representing the west coast marine theme. Stained glass, mosaics, carved stone and embossed brass are all employed to create an amazing effect.

In a more global, modern sense, the planning of Vancouver's downtown core, in particular it's new residential areas, has been hailed as a wonder of modern urban design. Vancouver's planners and developers have succeeded in creating a highly livable, active, and safe downtown core, which is attracting so many people that planners are now concerned that there will not be enough space left in the core for future commercial office tower development. The primary element of this development is the creation of urban neighbourhoods in "the Vancouver Style", a phrase coined by urban planners in Germany. This style emphasizes narrow, tall "point towers", sitting on a podium of low rise townhouses designed to create a pedestrian-friendly streetscape. These towers are clustered around neighbourhood parks, greenspaces, and abut amenities such as community centres and seawalls. The two most prominent areas to view these new neighbourhoods are the Coal Harbour area, west of Canada Place, and the entire north shore of False Creek, from the Plaza of Nations all the way to the Granville Street Bridge.

Ok, so food is constantly on my mind...

by VTShounen

The food!!!

If you're like me, from a landlocked location, then definitely try the seafood, in particular the sushi!

But for anyone, you must try out the Asian cuisine. There are lots of choices, and if you're Asian, you'll be amazed at the authenticity and quality. If you're not Asian, there is much less chance for you to end up at a place that passes off ginger beef as authentic.

Vancouver Tip

by REXX

Salmon!! To tell you the truth, I've never ate any salmon
sashimi that thick that good!! If you have chance to go to
Vancouver, never forget to find a Japanese restaurant where
serve Salmon sashimi, it's delicious yet, so chip!!!

Our House

by Pat&ZoAnn

This is how we look from an airplane. This is quite an old photo, the hotel in the lower right corner (you can only see the parking lot), has been replaced with a newer one, and we have had three different people living in the house next to us since the folks with the trampoline moved out. The bottom left corner of the photo shows the Trans Canada highway on its way from the Second Narrows Bridge to Whistler.

Head down to Canada Place

by duanestorey

I love being by the water. If you head downtown to Canada Place, you can get some great views of Stanley Park, North Vancouver, and the Cruise Ship Terminal. Sitting on a bench near Canada Place, watching the ships come in!
