Great for little kids

This is an indoor conservatory which is a great spot for kids in the winter - particularly on a rainy day. It's very warm and moist so don't overdress.

Love the tropical Birds and Butterflies that fly freely in the dome . The plants are all very healthy . I wish there was more to see there though

We really enjoyed ourselves at the Bloedel Conservatory. The views from outside were impressive whilst the warm humid environment inside transported us to various tropical regions of the world. We are from Australia and for us it was fun to find a number of Australian birds in the dome, including a sulphur crested cockatoo and a couple of eclectus parrots.... More

A sanctuary of birds that seem to enjoy being with people! We sang "Ho ho ho, it's off to work we go" and got Casey the parrot to dance for us. You can get up close and personal with the parrots and they will talk back to you. The staff talk about them like they are persons. We were there... More

.....spend about an hour in the conservatory viewing tropical plants and especially the birds. It is the center piece of Queen Elizabeth Park, which has wonderful views of the city....I believe at the highest point in Vancouver. About 30 minutes drive from downtown.

I love this place! Spend an hour or two in a little paradise of cheeky birds and beautiful flowers. Great, knowledgeable staff who clearly care for their feathered friends.

Encased under a huge bubble, the conservatory is a quiet, warm little oasis in the middle of the big city. Its packed with botanicals, babbling streams and beautiful tropical birds. Give yourself time to sit on a bench and bird watch and enjoy this nice little gift.

There is a pay-parking lot. You probably only need to pay for any hour. I can not imagine it would take longer than that to tour. I believe the machine only took credit/debit cards. The entrance fee was $6.50, which seemed a little on the steep side. The outside area has a dancing fountain, a large overlook with a view... More

Knowing it was going to be drizzling when we arrived, I planned this stop knowing how much Holly enjoyed garden stops on our previous trip. Good choice. And the birds are fun to watch and a fascinating variety. Small crowd when we were there, but given the size of the parking lot ( which serves the entire park) I can... More

This was an excellent way to start my wife's birthday. We have visited this wonderful conservatory many times and each time is more rewarding that the last. You can either go through it in about twenty minutes and not really see anything, or bring your camera or just take your time and really enjoy nature. It is easy to spend... More
