Very Pretty stroll but there is not a lot else going on there - there is a restaurant and although the location is top - the food will have you leaving and going somewhere else. I gave it 5 stars because the location is amazing and the drinks were great.

A beautiful park and one we were impressed with upon our first visit. Queen Elizabeth Park is like a "mini" Butchart Gardens. The flowers are gorgeous and upon arrival you may see many people practicing the peaceful movements of Tai Chi. The Bloedel Conservatory is one of the must see places in the park and our young adult children enjoyed... More

The warmth of the Bloedel conservatory was so inviting. We interacted with the cockatoo's and enjoyed the tropical environment. I was even able to hold a Plumeria blossom (didn't pick it) to my nose to inhale the sweetest scent (in my opinion) in the world. We enjoyed the experience.

Amazing views of the entire city, ocean and mountains looking north. Nothing like it in Vancouver. Wonderful restaurant on site at Seasons in the Park. Old Quarry is awesome to overlook and to wander down into. That is just one unique feature. There are rose gardens, ponds, and flowers all surviving beautifully in rocky outcrops or raised beds. You can... More

We found this park quite by accident as it was near where we had our AirBnB accommodations. It is quite nice to stroll around, but the real piece de resistance was the Bloedel Conservatory---a domed structure full of tropical plants, ponds and tropical birds. Well worth the trip to the park for this alone, but the rest of the garden... More

Wow! We had some extra time on the morning of our planned cruise ship departure, so we planned a trip to Queen Elizabeth Park. When we arrived and parked it looked similar to other nice city parks. Once we walked around we discovered to gardens that were formerly quarries. These were like mini Butchart gardens in nearby Victoria. There has... More

Park was beautiful and the Ziplining was fun! We did not have the chance to go inside but the outside (free areas) was very beautiful as well.

A lovely park, well worth a visit, particularly if you combine it with a visit to the Bloedell Conservatory. Check out the rose garden, walk around. If you only have one day in Vancouver, exploring the downtown might be a better option for you. If you have another half-day or so, as we did, the park/Conservatory visit could be a... More
