Gardens on Anderton in Comox had a successful 2021, despite COVID challenges

The Gardens on Anderton would like to thank the public for all your efforts in making the 2021 garden season a blooming success.

The Gardens on Anderton were open to the public from May 29 – Oct. 3 in 2021, with a record-setting 4,500+ visits throughout the season.

The new Children’s Garden opened in May and proved very popular with kids and adults alike. The gardens hosted several outdoor music events, birthday parties and weddings, and had many local groups hold meetings where everyone could follow public health orders. Staff navigated various challenges in 2021 including heatwaves and the ever-changing COVID situation, and want to express their gratitude for all the community support during these strange times.

Annual memberships are $25 for individuals and $35 for a family (one household). Benefits include free workshops, garden access from February-October, volunteer opportunities, and more. Memberships are valid for the calendar year. Information and application forms can be found online at
