Bloedel Conservatory has recently gotten a new roof. It looks splendid. There are many colorful plants, bushes, and flowers throughout. There are also many beautiful exotic birds in every colour imaginable. However, as one would expect in a tropical setting, it is vey hot and humid. Strongly recommended if you are in Vancouver. There is a fabulous view from the... More

Our half day city tour included a stop at this prime Vancouver attraction in Queen Elizabeth Park, and we had perhaps forty minutes to explore. The Conservatory is fairly compact, contained in a geodesic dome only 140 feet in diameter, but the interior is cleverly laid out so that there are many different examples of plants, birds, reptiles and fish...

Situated in QE Park it required a little effort to reach from downtown, but with glorious weather it turned out to be an excellent day out. You could go around the conservatory in about ten minutes if you have no interest in its contents. We spent two hours. The plants, trees and birds are wonderful. The birds, particularly, are worth...

As grandparents we took our grandchildren aged 11 and 9 to this delightful place. Both age groups were enthralled. We went around it three times and each time saw something different. The birds up high, those down low and those at eye level were brilliantly coloured and obviously used to humans. The vegetation was clearly identified with interesting snippets of... More

Take time to go here especially if it is a rainy day. Lovely garden walk - inside the Conservatory with birds to entertain you. Lunch before or after at Seasons in the Park makes it a perfect place to visit.

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
