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.

Great place to spend a rainy morning with the kids. Lots of birds and butterflies to see and admission is cheap ($5)... dry and warm. It only takes 15mins to walk around the whole thing, so we usually do a couple of laps....

When visiting the Queen Elizabeth Park, spend an extra 20-30 minutes to wander inside the conservatory. It is warm and humid inside. Feels like you are in the rainforest in the tropics! Exotic colourful birds to be seen!

It was such a nice area we were inside for 2 hours and didn't understand when time passed. It was really nice. A real must see place.

This is a jewel of Vancouver. Hidden in the beautiful Queen Elizabeth park. It has been and icon for more that 40 years and hopefully will be for 40 more. It is well worth the trip, even if it is just for the gardens and view outstide..... and if you feel munchy... check out SEASONS IN THE PARK which is... More

When you read the title of this attraction, you only see "floral". But this place is so much more. They have tropical birds also. One of the birds (Kramer) struck up a conversation with my husband. He got Kramer to talk by saying "Rosie", which I understand was the name of one of the previous birds at Bloede, now deceased.... More

For a small charge, you can take this walking tour through the conservatory. If you are from the southern part of the country, there are the same plants that you probably have in your own yard but if you are from the northern part of the country, you will find it very interesting.

It is small but it is oh so lush and green. It's amazing year round, but I love going in the colder months when you need a bit of cheering up. The clean fresh oxygen hits you the second you walk in the door, and you are usually greeted with one or two friendly feathered friends. The flora and fauna... More

Doesn't matter how crappy the weather, this is one of the most beautiful spots in Vancouver. Feels like you are a million miles away when you're inside with the smell of the flowers and the birds. Great place for kids to get some outdoor action, inside. Parking is easy and free if you park down the hill and the views... More
