  • This observatory is not overly large but a nice stroll for about an hour. Large and small tropic plants to admire and an abundance of birds, small and large. Really enjoyed the close up to the tiny sp...  more »
  • I love this place. If i could make my home feel special somehow this is what i would model it on. Feels great. Take 3 or 4 loops. Sit and relax. Have a great visit. Geodesic domes are amazing. 
  • I love going to this hidden gem with great views of the city skyline. Lots of birds and plants. A fun, warm outing on a wet and windy day.

  • Loved it. Very reasonable price. Very nice tropical garden with many exotic plants and numerous colorful birds. The geodesic dome looks really cool and the park around the conservatory is lovely, with a couple of art installations, waterfalls and benches to relax on. Also, there is a great view of Vancouver and the mountains. I found it way more interesting and beautuful than the Chinese Gardens downtown, and at a much lower price. Will recommend this to all my friends coming to Vancouver.
  • It's cute and lovely if you enjoy many different plants and birds. I like that they provide a bird watching guide. Admission is affordable. We were very happy to visit the Conservatory.
  • “Wonderful place!” When I was feeling blue, one of my friends recomanded this place. This place is small place. But they are provide a good service with bird watching. And it's cheap to get in, you can walk around colorful bird and tropical plants. Also, the Bloedel conservatory in a location right in Queen Elizabeth park. If you're visited in spring, you'll spend your time awesome! The atmosphere here is great!
  • This is the best small garden I have ever seen! Totally punching above its weight. You can walk around the whole garden in about 5 mins or less, but to enjoy it properly will take you over an hour easily. They have parrots, macaws (not sure what is the difference), small birds that fly around and run the pathways (kids go crazy over these). Very photogenic so remember your camera. There is a restroom inside the garden, and one more right outside the main entrance, which is really nice. Travel sites should have this higher on their list of top places to visit.
  • unique nature experience, great for miserable cold days
