  • Beautiful little covered conservatory. Great to come with family or friends. Takes about half an hour to max an hour to go around and study the different species on a rainy day.  more »
  • My friend and I came here based upon reviews on Yelp and Tripadvisor. My friend is a Vancouver native and has never been before. Of course, it is always a great excuse to see new things when a friend ...  more »
  • This tropical paradise is the deal of the day in Vancover, at less than ten dollars. It is up to you how much time you spend but it is a respite in the middle of the city. You will likely need a taxi ...  more »

  • A great place to visit in Vancouver on a rainy day. The dome shaped greenhouse is not big, but the tropical garden within is beautiful. It houses over 200 birds. Learn about the social behavior of different species from the helpful staff and be amazed by the acrobatic flight of countless small cute birds chasing one another.
  • Made me feel like I was in a prehistoric place, with lovely exotic plants and birds flying around naturally in their environment. Had to make at least two trips around the conservatory to get a chance at viewing a majority of the birds, since they roam around freely. This conservatory is in the middle of Queen Elizabeth Park, which is a great place for picnics and gives an amazing view of Vancouver at the peak. Cost is cheap to attend (was $6.50 for each adult during our visit).
  • Nice place for bird lovers! Small but expect to spend a good 20 mins here. All types of birds and they sing :) prices are reasonable too: $6.60 for adults, $3.60 for children 3+ and free under that age.
  • Not too expensive, but you have to pay to visit the inside of the conservatory. Outside is well kept though. Very nice view of the mountains.
  • We just had a day in the area and we're staying near the airport. We found this place on the map, jumped on the sky train and checked it out with a kid in the stroller. It was fun for the family and had great plants and birds.
