“Lovely gardens”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Filberg Park is a beautiful gem in the middle of Comox. It is a delight to wander through any time, but of course in the summer the Tea House is open, and on the August Long Weekend there is the Filberg Festival to enjoy.

“Filberg festival August long weekend is the gem of Comox”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

If you are planning an August vacation on Vancouver island, I recommend going to the Filberg festival on the long weekend. Two music stages, top local artisans selling their wares, good food. The site is a well preserved rich family farm from the 19th. century including amazing house, meticulously kept grounds and original animal enclosures. Great fun for everyone.

“Beautiful, Nature at its Best”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Beautiful park overlooking Comox Bay. Picnic places. Large grassed areas used for festivals, music and art. Lot of heritage buildings, deer and a creek. Very peaceful place. Lots of benches to sit on.

“A heritage oasis”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

A wonderful place to sit, read, or enjoy the view. The original owner was a logging magnate, who collected and preserved tree species from around the world. The trees and gardens are elegantly laid out, and the flowers are spectacular. Unfortunately the lovely home was under renovation when we were there, so we could only peek through windows. It's worth a trip back to see the inside!

“Through the Looking Glass”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The grounds as you enter the park immediately swallow you up in an ethereal cocoon. The air is cleaner, fresher, more oxygenated. The trees are from all over the world, some of which no longer exist in their native homeland. Flowers are planted everywhere and are changed regularly with the season. There are lovingly restored outbuildings peeking through the shrubbery and the lodge itself sends you back in time - the story of its original construction restores your faith in human nature. The fireplace stones were gleaned from the adjacent shoreline and feature two carved hieroglyphics dated two thousand years or so ago. We've been there countless times and never fail to find out something new about it. It is a magical, special place.
