Flowers bloom most of the year, as the area is naturally hospitable to a wide variety of plant life and vegetation. Topographically, Mission enjoys an immense variation of hillsides and gullies which maintain natural
neighbourhood enclosures, spectacular views, and a sense of permanence. It is the site B.C.’s first rail link to the United States, one of the earliest Hydroelectric dams and
