Stopped in to the Conservatory in the early Spring and although the gardens were not in bloom yet the view from atop the hill is marvellous. The Conservatory also was a joy. Imagine waling along their paths where wild birds and butterflies fly freely. It's balmy warm as well so relieved the April chill from outside. It's a wonderful place... More

We went because we had never been. I will go back again when showing off our local attractions to visitors. Take a camera with a flash, I still love looking at the photos we took, a good mix of plants and birds. Go when it is raining. It is warm and humid so be prepared. It is not huge so... More

The good thing was that it was cheap, but I still found that the conservatory was way too tiny for such an idea. That being said the flowers and birds that they had were very lovely, one particulat parrot standing out as he was cheekily hopping to and fro on his perch the whole time in and adorable way. If...

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
