victoria to nanaimo to butcharts?

My children really want to go play in the trees at Wild Park in Nanaimo.

My mom and I want to see the night show at butcharts.

I was thinking that if we rent a car we can leave early to nanaimo and spend the morning there and then leave for an evening at butcharts.

Opinions? How long is the drive from victoria to nanaimo? How long is the drive from nanaimo to butcharts? Is this do-able or is are these places in different directions?

Thanks in advance

It's 1 1/2 hrs between Victoria and Nanaimo. On the return you could take the ferry (25 mins) from Mill Bay to Brentwood Bay then drive to Butchart, rather than driving all the way back. See www.bcferries.com Where it says "Plan Your Trip" in the "Leaving From" box click on Mill Bay under the Vancouver Island departures for the time schedule.
