Park History

Out of a logged parcel of land, Francisca and Edwin Darts cleared and transformed their property initially into an award-winning orchard. As Francisca became more involved with local gardening clubs, so did her enthusiasm for rare and unusual plants from around the world.

Gradually, they transformed their garden again, creating a collection garden – a plantsman’s garden. Wishing to see their garden continue to grow, inspire and teach new generations of gardeners, the Darts gifted their 7.5 acre garden to The City of Surrey in 1994.

Darts Hill Garden Park Endowment

The Darts Hill Garden Park Endowment provides necessary funds to build upon Francisca Darts’ vision of a Plantsman’s Garden. The Endowment contributes to capital projects that ensure the garden continues to be a unique and vital asset within the City of Surrey. Your generous contribution helps ensure the fund continues to grow and provides benefit to visitors to Darts Hill Garden Park through additional amenities and improvements. 

In 1994 Edwin and Francisca Darts donated their 7.5-acre garden to the City of Surrey and its citizens. Their intention was to give Surrey its own garden to be used as a horticultural centre for the preservation, enhancement, and development of plants. Learn more about the Darts Hill Garden Park Endowment and opportunities to contribute to the legacy of Darts Hill Garden Park.

Event Notice

Due to the sensitive nature of the botanical and unusual plant life at Darts Hill, it was Mr. and Mrs. Darts’ wish that events (including corporate events), event photography and weddings not take place in the garden. 

We highly recommend visiting Bear Creek Park, which is complete with a wedding chapel and beautifully manicured gardens on a first-come, first-served basis.

Be sure to explore all the display gardens in the City of Surrey.
