This tropical garden is downtown, but many people overlook it when visiting Victoria, although it is close to the harbour, the museum, and the totem poles. There are butterflies, parrots, and even golden lion tamarinds, along with over 200 species of plants. Crystal Garden just celebrated its 75th anniversary, originally a tea room, heated indoor saltwater pool, and community centre, and is as much an historical site as a ecological one.
