Easter Bunny Hunt – Butchart Gardens
Butchart Gardens is a beautiful floral garden located in Brentwood Bay. It has a range of delightful features such as bronze sculptures, ornamental birds and glorious fountains such as the Sturgeon Fountain.
From 19th-22nd April, Butchart Gardens will have twelve rabbits scattered around the grounds and children will be given a map in order to tick all twelve off their list. Once done, the finished maps can be given in to the Visitor Information Centre for a prize.
