If you want to see the most beautiful assortment of flowers and greenery you can imagine, this is your place. The variety and size of the many flowers made it seem that they almost had to not be real! I took a lot of photos of the flowers and birds that I can share. This is a must visit place.

You would never believe that you are in Vancouver when you step into the Bloedel. It is a world of tropical flowers and birds that surround you with their sound and aromas! It is a must to visit!

We went here with my Grandma, who is hard of hearing and mobility impaired. She had no trouble getting around, and the volunteer docents were very good at speaking up and facing her to talk. She had a blast, and so did we!

After looking at the pictures of this place and the mention of all the "free flying" birds, I was under the impression that the parrots were free to fly about and sit on your shoulder ( if they chose to do so). However that is not the case, a member of staff told us that they have clipped wings and... More

The vegetation and the birds were visually interesting and worth the visit which was about 30 minutes. If you like to take photos of birds this is a very easy spot for that. I am sure that in winter it might be even more appealing to be waking through a tropical paradise than it was on this fair summer day.

Its basically a giant aviary in a dome - but WOW. Perched up a top the highest point in the city, you find this massive glass dome and for like $6 US you can wander through and see tropical birds and plants in a natural environment. The plants and birds are nothing unique, you could see them at a zoo... More

This garden is essentially enclosed in a domed glasshouse which houses many exotic flora and fauna. Rare birds and parrots fly freely around and it is wonderful to see them so closely. There is also a nice gift shop. Outside is a lovely fountain and many high vantage points for good photos. Well worth a visit,

The conservatory was small and doesn't take much time to walk around. The birds are cute very colorful and there are much prettier plants in the garden... Don't forget to use your AAA card for a discounted entry into the Conservatory. If this was a helpful review please let me know!

My family and I came across the Bloedel Conservatory while exploring Queen Elizabeth Park and had to have a wander around. I thought it was very unique and quite incredible. It was a rainforest inside of a building. There was a waterfall, a small bridge, colourful birds, exotic plants and flowers etc. The only thing I didnt like was the... More
