This is a place to visit, with or without children, if you want to see some very colorful, and talkative, tropical birds (parrots and Macaws) and some very in treating tropical plants and trees in a natural setting. The setting in Queen Elizabeth Park is beautiful and offers some very good views of Vancouver and the surrounding mountains.

Affordable wonderful greenspace. A Vancouver jewel not over run like Stanley Park. Enjoy the birds and the plants. I will be back.

We visited Bloedel Conservatory on our recent trip to Vancouver. It was kind of in a whim. We arrived about an hour before their reduced December hours of operation (due to there being night viewing) but still were able to see the whole enclosure - however, we could have easily lost 3 hours or perhaps more just watching the birds...

First visit to Conservatory in a long time with out of town friends. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Birds and plants were very interesting. But, unfortunately, there is a horrible infestation of mice. They're running all over the place getting fat off bird seed. I'm concerned for my health with all the feces this causes. Contaminates may become airborne... More

This is an interesting spot for first-time visitors. Lush foliage, tropical birds, and the sound of running water will make you feel interestingly removed from the usual climate of the Pacific NorthWest. They light it up during the Holidays as well, which is a great experience for families.

The Bloedel Conservatory's Enchanted Nights over Christmas offered a warm, dry environment instead of a cold and drizzly night at Van Dusen Gardens viewing their Christmas lights, but there is no comparison. I think the Bloedel Conservatory has just entered this game and hopefully they can improve and refine their offerings. The Conservatory is darkened and there are coloured lights... More

I loved my visit to the Bloedel Conservatory! Yes, it's small. But they sure pack a lot in! From flora to fauna to birds, they have it all here...and it's so very well presented. It was a great spot for photo ops, though with the birds you must be patient. It's worth it. It's possible to spend hours here if... More

For $6.50 you can easily spend a couple of hours in another world full of birds and tropical plants (plus goldfish and koi). It's small but there's lots to see and hear, and when the birds are fed in the middle of the day you can watch the little ones come to the main feeding station. You get a printed... More

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighborhood Profile
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
