This is a very wonderful garden to visit, there is lots to see here from beautiful roses to the exceptional conservatory. And if that isn't enough, the view is nothing short of stunning. Highly recommended for visitors and residents alike.

Walkable nature views and close to a minor league baseball park, accessible by several modes of public transportation and very family friendly. Make sure you bring bug repellent and sunscreen. Applause for the city's aggressive push towards recycling, zero waste and being more eco-friendly.

The park is easy to reach with the Vancouver bus system. A short walk up the hill along some beautiful paths and gardens and the reward is in a breathtaking few over the city of Vancouver. Don't miss Bloedel Concervatory, it's worth the small admission fee.

Lots of parking available on a Monday morning around 10am. First, we visited the Bloedel Conservatory. The waterfall fountain is beautiful and great for photo opportunities. Loved the conservatory. The tropical birds and plants are gorgeous. What a special feeling that was to walk around pretending I was in a rainforest. Agnes, the horticulturalist director, is doing a great job... More

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

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.
