The extensive gardens have many captivating features. Nine landscaped acres, with a stream running through the natural ravine provide a perfect setting for a variety of plantings such as maples and magnolias. Rare and exotic trees from many parts of the world include a selection of stately oaks, London Planes, Atlas and Deodora cedars, pines of many species and a variety of other mature trees.
There are beds of various annuals and perennials, and hundreds of rhododendrons, many from the famous collection of the Greig family. Heathers, spring bulbs, flowering shrubs and dwarf conifers thrive in the fine microclimate. The park is a wonderful place for a peaceful stroll or an afternoon picnic.
*Please note that the Park is closed the week leading up to the Filberg Festival, as well as the week after the Festival.
The Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park is part of the Vancouver Island Garden Trail, a self-directed tour of a diverse variety of stunning Island gardens.

THE TOTEM POLE
TLA WA SINTS GUY U LAS
(Strength from our ancestors)
Created and carved by Richard Krentz, a renowned local carver, the totem captures the spirit of Comox ancestry and the cultural pride of its native people. The four figures, Thunderbird, Sunman, White Whale (Queneesh) and Bear are the crests of the four main families of the Comox native people. A generous donation by Gordon and Ivy Wagner, the pole was erected in June 1994 and stands on an ancient Indian midden overlooking Goose Spit and the Comox Glacier.
Just above the Filberg Summer Kitchen on a sloping hill, you will find a charming herb garden, inviting to both the eye and the nose. The garden is lovingly planted and maintained by the Comox Valley Horticultural Society. This aromatic treasure thrives because of their generous donation of time and plants.
