So many colors

This park was filled with the colors of the rainbow. The manicured grounds were spectacular. Their pathways led you to different arrangements at every turn.

Both the conservatory and park are well maintained. Our guide at the conservatory was friendly and very informative. She essentially gave us a private tour, providing descriptions of the various birds and their histories to us.

If you visit Stanley Park you really must visit Queen Elizabeth Park too. The view on a clear day rivals Grouse Mountain and you can have fun trying to identify the valleys and mountains of the North Shore as well as the panoramic views of downtown Vancouver. Sunsets and Sunrises are spectacular and there's the amazing Conservatory too. How could... More

Beautiful hiilltop city park with beautiful mature landscaping resembling a work of Olmstead. The quarry gardens are gorgeous, and the views of downtown Vancouver are stunning. Well worth a 1hour visit for a quick stroll, and great photo opportunities.

I visited this park twice during my one week stay. My favorite was the second time. The day had started out with a dreadful rain and the sky remained ominous as I headed out from downtown. The weather app had promised sunshine as the day progressed. As if on cue, as I got off the bus, the sky brightened and... More

Queen Elizabeth Park is a beautiful place to visit. It has lots of trees and flowers. There's a lovely duck pond where one can see lots of ducks and geese. The rose garden is a big attraction. There's also lawn bowling, tennis courts and a pitch and putt golf course. Plenty of squirrels and even the odd coyote. The reservoir... More

We decided to stop here and visit the Bloedel Observatory. when we walked back towards the car we found the Quarry Gardens - it was like stepping into Butchart Gardens - only FREE!. It was a great stop on the way back into town fro an afternoon of more sightseeing.

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.
