Long Description:

In 1984, Bill Vander Zalm bought Fantasy Garden World. Vander Zalm was born in Noordwijkerhout, Netherlands and emigrated to Canada after World War II. He would become 28th Premier of British Columbia. While in office, Vander Zalm became embroiled in a conflict of interest controversy over the sale of his Fantasy Gardens flower garden and theme park. The conflict of interest arose because the Taiwanese buyer, Tan Yu, was provided VIP treatment and lunch with the Lieutenant-Governor prior to the sale. Vander Zalm claimed that control over the theme park was his wife's responsibility.

The park now sits empty waiting for the next owners or redevelopment.
