Accessible by bus, the Bloedel Conservatory is set in the Queen Elizabeth park. Unusual in design, it was nice to walk into a tropical garden from the cold wintery outside. Not very big, but a couple lovely unusual statues outside overlooking the city. A pretty park to stroll in and picnic.

The grounds are very pretty and wonderful to walk around even in the Winter. But the real star is the conservatory with its screaming birds, gorgeous plants and beautiful fish. Just a joy to visit.

Went in early February on a drizzly day (drizzle in Vancouver - really?) and it was nice. Smaller than I expected but they do offer a senior's rate, which is quite reasonable. It doesn't take more than 20 minutes to walk the path through but do yourself a favour and go through again. You'll see lots of plants and birds... More

I will say straight out that I am a bird lover and know several of the parrots here reasonably well, as I used to work for the vet that is in charge of treating them, so I am a bit biased. Bloedel is very small, and will, at most, take up 45 minutes of your time. You can walk around... More

We attended with a group of ten people expecting to be treated to the "spectacular" as advertised. No, it was not. The Conservatory is small! The 3 zones are undistinguisable leaving one to wonder, is this all there is. One would be hard pressed to identify unless you worked there. 15 minutes and your done. 200 birds etc., (?) ..half...

Enjoy a tropical break from the winter rain! This small conservatory is well designed and filled with a beautiful array of flowers and the joyful sound of birds. Benches are conveniently placed throughout the space, so that you can sit and enjoy the tropical oasis. Knowledgable volunteers roam throughout the space and are ready to answer any inquiry a visitor... More

This place is not a bad thing to do on a rainy day, but I won't be back any time soon. It's a bit small, kind of underwhelming. Seeing so many different types of birds was cool though. Tough to spend more than an hour inside.

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.
