it was a great view of the city, I brought my 7yr old and she got a little bored just walking around, however the flowers and landscape was beautiful, we also visited the conservatory which was under construction so it didnt look so apealing on the outside, but the inside was great and we even did a hunt for birds...

Convert it into an urban park outfitted with an arboretum. You'll see a wedding for sure if you visit during the summer months. It is popular with bridal parties.

The Queen Elizabeth park is a large urban park crowned with an conservatory. The conservatory is stuffed with exotic plants and a variety of birds. We went for an hour and stayed longer. While not huge, the conservatory stole our attention with its wide variety of plant life and tropical birds, both large and small

Queen Elizabeth Park is a bit off the beaten path, but worth a trip. The "sunken gardens" are superbly manicured, and lovely viewed from above, where there is a lovely path and bridge just over the little waterfall down to the sunken gardens.

QE Park itself is massive, but the center of it is the sunken garden and conservatory at the very top. They've also renovated the pavilion to accommodate regular yoga and tai chi enthusiasts. Word of advise - while tempting, stay clear of the restaurant at the top of the park (Seasons in the Park). A definite tourist trap, and food... More

My wife and I went out to Queen Elizabeth Park via the Skytrain (Oakridge/41st Street) and spent some quality time enjoying the beauty. The first afternoon we got to the park a little late, so we weren't able to see everything we wanted. So we decided to go back a second time. Upon arriving we once again were taken back... More

From the botanical gardens, Frisbee golf course, conservatory, Nat Bailey Stadium (Go Canadians Go), tennis courts and amazing view of the North Shore Mountains, there is a bit of everything for everyone.

Who would think that in the middle of winter you could go inside an encloser and find the most amazing flora and birds. The park was not in flower due to the season so would love to return in the spring or summer.
