For years this park was a place that was worth taking the time to go and walk around. I was there today and it was a dry barren chunk of land. What a shame that the City has chosen to let it go. And please do pay to park here!

The gardens here are beautiful! And you get a great view of downtown Vancouver. There is a fee to park, but there is free parking on Ontario Street. You will just need to walk up hill to get the gardens.

This is a great place to visit, especially if you are on a tight budget. The landscaping and gardens are beautiful, and you can park for free on the side of the road (unless you don't want to walk up the hill). It's a great place to walk around and relax. Also, the views of downtown are good for photos.

We had a great little visit at the park. We went around 5 p.m. so there was very little foot traffic. Hardly anyone was in the conservatory so it seemed like we had the whole place by ourselves. The collection of plants and birds were very impressive for such a small space. The outside gardens were equally nice and quite... More

Had a relative visiting from out of town & thought of taking them to the park & conservatory. The park is lovely & the flowers, plants & trees made it a beautiful setting for an afternoon stroll on a warm day. Great views of the city skyline from up top by the conservatory. The conservatory was worth the reasonable admission... More

This park is under-rated or maybe the locals just want to keep this to themselves. The grounds were beautifully kept and not crowded. You can spend a couple of hours just enjoying all the pretty flowers and gardens.

The gardens are just beautiful and so well maintained. The trails are clean, we saw no garbage anywhere. It was defiantly a must see. We all enjoyed it very much. A photographers dream.

This is another city park in Vancouver worth visiting, in addition to Stanley Park. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained! You can bring a picnic lunch or dine at the park in the restaurant. The Quarry Gardens are not to be missed! The view from the top of the park near the Bloedel Conservatory is amazing!

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighborhood Profile
Shaughnessy
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
