on a short day trip we had the chance to stop at rhododendron flats in manning park. the grove of pacific rhododendron is just off highway 3 (the crowsnest) highway. there is a small parking lot and toilet along with information signs about the grove. as they are natural/native only one colour grows, however the beauty of them at different phases of development are as diverse as any garden. it is a pleasant 15 minutes stroll around a well maintained path amongst the pines and cedars. the grade is gently but not suitable for wheelchairs or someone with difficulty walking.
