If you appreciate exotic plants and some of our little feathered friends, this is a great place to stroll and take in the sights while the enjoying oxygen rich air in the covered dome. The admission is inexpensive @ $6.50 for Adults and $4.50 for seniors (65 plus). The time to see everything depends on the amount of time you want to spend learning about or photographing the various plants and birds. You are provided with a plant map and a bird photograph list to assist you as you walk on paved paths. Our visit took approximately two hours as my daughter shot over four hundred photos and probably could have spent even more time looking for that perfect shot. It was a rainy grey Vancouver day but inside was like going to the tropics. Depending on the outside temperature, the inside temperature can be very humid and create a rainforest water droplet condition, so be advised. It is centrally located and has plenty of parking. You will be directed by signs to a pay parking lot, but if you go past the lot and stay on the entry road, there is plenty of free parking spaces along the road. Unfortunately the beautiful koi fish are no longer there as a non thinking person brought in and released a Quail into this controlled environment and infected the fish with a parasite, so please respect the plants and birds and enjoy yourselves. We will continue to visit and support this beautiful place.

Exotic plants from around the world and a few birds as well. You can find plant species in here to learn about, take pictures. An interesting place to visit. Found in Queen Elizabeth Park, south of the downtown area, up Cambie street to the south.

The Bloedel Conservatory is an amazing little bio-dome with beautiful lush tropical plants and free flying exotic birds. While not large, it is a great place to go to escape rainy Vancouver weather. You can take an afternoon for a leisurely stroll under a beautiful tropical canopy while all kind of birds fly around you. It is fun to take the bird checklist provided at the front desk and see how many you can spot. During our visit, we saw gorgeous parrots, including an African Grey, canaries, finches, budgies and pheasants. A colourful orange Chinese Pheasant even followed us around. It is a great place for photographers who want to get some excellent shots of exotic birds without having to fly to South America!

The conservatory and the surrounding Queen Elizabeth Park is a nice close place in the middle of Burnaby to enjoy plants and nature.
