We didn't get chance to see all of the Queen Elizabeth Park, but what we did get to see, was excellent. It's very easy to get to as well, either by bus, or like we did we got a day ticket on the Sky Train, then went most of the way by sky train then the rest by bus (which... More

This park is a garden! From the moment to walk to see the city views you come in contact with the beautiful gardens and flowers. Besides you can have a taste of the tropics in the North by going into the Bloedel Conservatory you will not regret this! If you want a good meal, take time to go into the... More

This is a bit out of the way for people staying in Downtown Vancouver, but if it's a nice day I'd say it's definitely worth the trip- it's not that difficult on the skytrain. The views over the city and mountains are unbeatable and the gardens are a bonus. As well as this there are interesting sculptures and fountains but... More

Absolute Must-Do when in Vancouver. Stroll the botanical gardens and eat at one of Vancouver's best restaurants Season's in the Park. Don't miss the fountains.

The park is beautiful and the views are great. We cycled there from our hostel in the downtown; it was a fun and aerobically stimulating ride along Vancouver's excellent bikeways (cycletracks, bike paths, bicycle boulevards).

Everyone who comes to Vancouver goes to Stanley Park but even though Queen Elizabeth Park is much smaller, a visit here is sure to delight. The views of the city and mountains from the top are spectacular and this alone makes a visit here worthwhile. But there is also the lovely garden built in a former quarry, the MacMillan Bloedel...

Stunning views of the city and perfectly manicured gardens with colorful flora and fountains greet you here. Black squirrels and a lone coyote walked along the paths with us.

This is such a beautiful park. It is free and there are plenty of places to walk. The plants and flowers are lovely as well as the walkways. There are even places to have a picnic! Well worth the time.

Groundskeepers do a marvelous job of keeping everything tidy and well groomed. I loved the variety of plants and their appealing arrangement. We did manage a couple of steep climbs while exploring, but it was a lovely experience. I would recommend it for a 60-90 minute visit
