Garden Bay wasn't named for its beautiful gardens, although these are plentiful in spite of the resident deer. It seems that a government surveyor, a Mr. Garden, assigned to mapping and naming the area, was either lacking in imagination or over-endowed with ego, leaving us with Garden Bay, Garden Bay Road, Garden Peninsula and Garden Bay Lake. Our federal government kept up the tradition by dedicating Garden Bay Marine Park.

According to the 2006 census, 323 of Pender Harbour's population lives in Garden Bay. Our SCRD Regional Director, Frank Mauro, is a Garden Bay resident.
