A tennis court turned bustling, colourful courtyard

COVID-19 Update: As of 9 AM, March 26th, The Butchart Gardens is temporarily closed to the public. See details by clicking here.

Originally the Butchart family’s tennis court, today the Italian Garden is ornamented with a bronze-cast statue and a flower-studded pond. Visiting on a hot summer’s day? Be sure to visit the Gelateria Benvenuto to sample the cooling and tempting flavours of our handmade sorbeto and authentic gelato.
