  • The Bloedel Conservatory is a glass building within which recreated a tropical environment and there are many birds of every size and color. The kids are excited to try all the birds found on the brochure you will receive at the entrance. The place is very well looked after and we spend a nice afternoon. The children insist to put five balls. Us great we put 4, however it is a nice place to visit.

  • Hard to believe how much is cramed into this space. If I could put a bed and kitchen in I would live there. The plants are incredible and the birds add a touch of fun. I would like to have the tour be...  more »
  • For about $7 per adult this is an absolute treat. Abundance of cute and beautiful birds of paradise flying around everywhere and literally within touching distance (but please refrain from touching!)....  more »

  • 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
