Ross Fountain at Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC

Ignore the chill of winter for a moment and enjoy this glimpse of Ross Fountain. It’s part of the carefully curated Butchart Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia, and named for Ian Ross, the grandson of the garden’s founders. Ross was largely responsible for Butchart Gardens’ expansion and development in the 20th century, helping to turn his grandparents’ vision into a reality and making the gardens one of Victoria’s most popular attractions.

The Butchart Gardens is a group of floral display gardens in Brentwood Bay, British Columbia, Canada, located near Victoria on Vancouver Island. The gardens receive close to a million visitors each year. The gardens have been designated a National Historic Site of Canada.
