A lovely park with botanical gardens and a large lake, we saw turtles in it and large carp, there is a bird attraction there of the feathered variety mainly parrots, but overall a good sized park with fantastic views of Vancouver and mountains in the distance.

Great place to visit on any day. The park gives different impression to visitors in different seasons. Spring and summer are the best for flowers, fall for the change of colour, winter for the misty rain and bare trees. I like the park with friends or without. Being alone for a walk in solitude, I can meditate. Even though the... More

This 130 acre park offers a lot to offer visitors. Beautiful gardens in which to stroll and relax, tennis courts, lawn bowling, the macmillan bloedel conservatory, one of the sequoia restaurants, great views of the city and mountains beyond. Whether you are just out for some exercise, are a shutterbug, or on a family picnic, this is a lovely, clean... More

QE is a fairly large park (not nearly as big as Stanley Park though), and is fairly popular among locals. There is plenty of street parking, and paid parking at the top. There is Bloedel Conservatory (about $5-10 admission), with rare plants and critters living inside. QE is a great place to visit during the Summer.

The Bloedel Conservatory is a forgotten gem in Vancouver. Perched at the top of the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park, this is a place to take parents and children alike. Step into the huge terrarium to see birds and tropical flora/fauna and follow the easy scavenger hunt. Be sure to bring your zoom lens!

A beautiful and relaxing place to visit and to just sit and soak up the atmosphere. The lawns and gardens are just beautiful and great views of the Island

A very calm and relaxing park along a hill in a nice neighborhood of Vancouver. Trails along the hill through a forest, 2 very unique botanical gardens and a very relaxing rose garden next to lawn bowling. There is also a very interesting greenhouse / biosphere to visit (fee about 6 CND) at the top of the park, and the... More

We went there at the evening, quiet and relax. From the top, you could see the city view. If you have time, having a dinner in Seasons would be highly recommended, but remember to make reservation.
