We did not read about this park on tripadvisor but simply showed up. The park is very nice. The water fountains were great and kids loved it.

There are many really great parks in the city--this is nice, but it is not as good as some of the others. Van Dusen, Dr Sun Yat Sin, and Stanley park are far better. If you have limited time, go to the others first.

The 20 minute drive to the outskirts of town is worth it. Looking back down at the skyline and then strolling the various quarry gardens is beautiful and impressive. If I had done this city first I would have SKIPPED Butchart Gardens! Plus its free (minus the parking).

This converted quarry has interesting terrain for the lush plantings. The city view on a clear day is brilliant . It was amusing to watch visitors take photos with the set of life sized bronze figures who are having their photo taken by a bronze photographer. The gardens provide a beautiful and popular location for wedding photos. We did not... More

The P&P course here is great fun, with lots of hills, trees and interesting shots. The view from here is stunning (almost the top of the city), and if walking back downtown the views are amazing (and plenty of good bars/restaurants on Cambie St. to have dinner).

This Park is one of the most beautiful. The perfect wedding photo spot in Vancouver. The conservatory is great to explore too. Then if you get hungry, sit on the patio at Seasons on the Park for a great meal.

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
