The rose gardens were still rich and colorful and the 360-degree views over the city and off to the distant mountains were spectacular. The array of trees is very special and includes several quite large "Monkey Puzzle" trees, an oddly alien-appearing species we had never previously seen.

some distance away from other attractions but well worth a visit; the whole setting is very nice; serene and elegant; but the real clincher is the view out over the city center and beyond;

We had great time at queen Elizabeth park. The highlight was the observatory with exotic birds and plants. Amazing views from the different location in the park.

Staying just a stones throw away from Gastown we could see Queen Elizabeth Park from the apartment window and using the metro it didnt really take too long to get there although there was probably a 15min walk from the station we used.

Its a hike to get to the top unless you want to pay for parking up there but it is worth it. Peaceful; looking down on the bustle of Vancouver

Went for a walk yesterday in the sunshine. Between the terrific views and a well laid out garden this park offers lots to see and do.I always enjoy the conservatory with the tropical plants and birds. It's very special around the Xmas holidays with the conservatory all done up with Christmas lights. Great place to take family over the holidays.... More

I felt like I was at Bouchard Garden in Victoria, junior style. The quarry similarity was evident, the destination areas was also similar. This was a nature photographer's candy store from flowers to sun infused leaves, to water reflections to bees and butterflies.

Etched out of a former quarry, this park offers some of the best views in the city and some wonderful flower gardens. Seasons in the Park is a wonderful restaurant. Nice pitch 'n putt course, disc golf and excellent tennis courts. Entrance to bloedel conservatory is very reasonable.

We loved the garden. It was beautiful and manages to achieve that rare delight in an attraction open to the public - a sense of peace and traquility. The cafe was good too!
