GROUNDS AND GARDENS

The College’s gardens are one of its glories, offering some of the best views on campus. Lay out a blanket for some reading on the lawn, stretch out on one of the many benches shaded in garden corners, or stroll by the vegetable garden (maintained by the Garden and Environmental Committee and the Green College Dining Society Staff). The upper lawn is also a natural place for pick-up games of soccer, cricket, or Frisbee.

In nice weather, you may be tempted to take your meal out on the patio. Residents often use this area as a comfortable workspace out in nature, plugged into their laptops while enjoying the fresh air. In the evening, you’ll find this the best spot to take in the incredible sunsets that Vancouver has to offer.

The trellised Rose Garden to the east of Graham House offers a place of peaceful retreat and welcome shade on hotter days. The nearby woodshed (named in honour of a former bursar of the College) contains fuel for the fireplaces in Graham House and the Coach House Certain residents are designated woodmen/women, responsible for keeping a good supply of split logs and kindling.

The gardens make a stunning backdrop for photographs. Members of the public are asked to contact before using the grounds for any photography.
