Nestled in the middle of gorgeous Queen Elizabeth park (which is a must-see by itself), the Bloedel Conservatory is an excellent place for tourists and locals to visit. The amount of exotic birds and plants you see in an hour is amazing. The admission is very cheap ($6.50/adult and even cheaper for youngsters) and worth it completely; I would go even if it was triple the price. Most of the birds are not afraid of humans and I had two less than a foot from me walking along the path. Very cool. It is quite humid inside, so bring layers. On your way in, there is a little self-guided tour pamphlet with numbers corresponding to various plants and birds and tid-bits of information on each. There is also a bird-watching pamphlet and a scavenger hunt, which would be great to make the experience even more exciting for little ones. And definitely bring your camera! You will be taking many pictures :).

This is a fascinating place to visit. It is in a beautiful place. You can spend the whole day exploring the park and the conservatory.

We spent a delightful hour with our biology-minded grandson in the warm humid air. We received a brochure to help identify the many species of exotic birds and were able to find almost all of them. This is particularly enjoyable on a chilly day, just like being transported to Fiji. You can take the walk through the conservatory on a few minutes, but we strongly encourage you to plan a longer time to really soak in the atmosphere and begin to see all the wonderful plants and birds.

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.
