Spent the afternoon in this park. Not only is it free entry, there is plenty to explore. We visited in the summer where the colour of the gardens is amazing and the weather in Vancouver is sublime. There is a restaurant perched on top of the park giving you a great view of the city. Would suggest taking bottled water... More

Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver is an old quarry that has been converted to a gorgeous city flower garden. It is a great alternative if you don't have time to visit Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island. It has a restaurant that is higher-end but worth a visit. .

We went to Queen Elizabeth Park immediately upon arrival in Vancouver. Many excellent hiking trails, lots of excellent vegetation and gardens, and was impressed by what we could do. Definitely something for everyone. We went to the conservatory as well, and had an excellent time with the birds and vegetation. Worth your time to visit and enjoy the beauty.

Come here to see the first rhododendron tree to blossom in the quarry garden. The cherry trees are delicate and profuse in the spring. The summer plantings have been highly imaginative. There has been a great use of colourful foliage in the last few years. Also interesting is the use of hens and chickens and other succulent plants to create... More

I usually go to this wonderful park on the way to my work. It's a Lil detour for me away from the hustle bustle of the city driving. I enjoy sitting near the pond. So relaxing and rejuvenating.

This park is surprisedly beautiful, we got a bit lost at first so we were disapointed thinking that the park was just very small and plain but when we found the entrance and got to know the place, me and my friends loved. I liked this place 1000x more than Stanley Park

A large path in south Vancouver with natural areas and botanical gardens. There's a huge hothouse, restaurant and sports areas including an excellent 18 hole pitch and putt course.

A beautiful park to take your girlfriend or boyfriend to. It can be a very long walk. Also nice to explore if you're there alone!

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.
