We went to the conservatory last weekend for a couple of hours and enjoyed looking at the lovely tropical plants, and so many pretty birds. The Christmas decorating was lovely. This is a lovely place to visit.

It has been a long time the last time I went to this place and I recommend this place to everyone to come and drop by. You can see all the beautiful flowers in there.

This little paradise on top of Little Mountain in Queen Elizabeth Park is a quaint way to be in the tropics for an hour for less than the price of a movie. I particularly like going there around Christmas when their poinsettia display is on. Don't miss a look at the Henry Moore sculpture just beyond the conservatory too.

Bloedel Conservatory has been thoroughly renovated and is now in top notch shape. It shows - over 500 different types of tropical plants and more than 150 different types of birds. Right now it is decorated for Christmas with lights. Children will love the birds - great for young ones on a rainy day and adults with an interest in... More

Today I was denied access along with three friends because we were dressed so nice. The lady refused to believe we weren't doing a photoshoot or having a wedding. She said we had to rent the place out to take pictures; meanwhile everyone else in the place had their cameras out. They lost business and respect.

Stopped in to the Conservatory in the early Spring and although the gardens were not in bloom yet the view from atop the hill is marvellous. The Conservatory also was a joy. Imagine waling along their paths where wild birds and butterflies fly freely. It's balmy warm as well so relieved the April chill from outside. It's a wonderful place... More

We went because we had never been. I will go back again when showing off our local attractions to visitors. Take a camera with a flash, I still love looking at the photos we took, a good mix of plants and birds. Go when it is raining. It is warm and humid so be prepared. It is not huge so... More

The good thing was that it was cheap, but I still found that the conservatory was way too tiny for such an idea. That being said the flowers and birds that they had were very lovely, one particulat parrot standing out as he was cheekily hopping to and fro on his perch the whole time in and adorable way. If...

Entrance fees - the fees are kept low and therefore very affordable for most visitors. Fauna display - wide range of tropical plants including orchids, ginvera, anthurium etc. The burst of colours is amazing. Birds - the parrots, again, in very bright colours. But what really was a joy to just sit and watch was the small collection of tiny... More

great place to visit with kids. We went with a 3 year old and an 8 year old who loved "talking" to the birds. The view of Vancouver from the Observatory is amazing. We were there for approximately 30-40 minutes viewing the different types of plants and birds.
