I was so pleased with the incredible gardens! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stroll through the park and a quick stop at the Bloedel Conservatory. I recommend a stop here. It's just too bad that you have to pay for parking here.

We arrived in Vancouver about noontime and had a cruise booked for next day. I enjoyed spending a few hours exploring this park with my family. Beautiful flowers and good set of trails through wooded areas, converted quarries, and flower plantings. Nice way to spend an afternoon. Had supper at the Seasons Restaurant and took a cab back to our... More

We didn't walk around much because of my Mother's lack of mobility . Being that it was free we did walk one small are and extremely enjoyed the biosphere with a large number of birds and plants(extra Charge). We ate at the restaurant SEASONS IN THE PARK, the food was excellent and the view was off the charts awesome

Perfect venue for a wedding! Beautiful lush gardens and a stunning view of Vancouver. I would have loved to have more time to enjoy. The water park was humming with kids!

Skip the restaurant, but if you are a walker this is a great plaice. Very hilly. If walking if an issue, Skip it. If hills are tricky, stay on the sea wall instead.

I like the greens, the flowers and trees...but perhaps just too many visitors. Perhaps in week days are better. I believe weekend just too many people.

Spent an afternoon walking through the gardens. Beautiful place but Very busy on a Sunday afternoon. So many places were ideal for peaceful reflection but large crowds prevented full enjoyment. Try to visit mid week if possible - maybe not during high season, though I realize flowers may not be in full bloom. Much shouting, laughter and animated photography during... More
