  • Beautiful plants and birds and it's nice and warm! Also, when you go outside it's a wonderful view of the city. It's very cheap and definitely worth it. The staff has an immense amount of knowledge about the birds, so I would definitely recommend approaching them if you see them waking around. The birds are gorgeous and get really close, they are super adorable! It's just a really calming place to be.
  • It's a phenomenal structure, glass dome built in 1966 but renovated in 2013, they have tropical birds that can speak, especially Cramer, the white cockatoo, who used to live in a fraternity house and knows all kinds of really obscene phrases. Go on a cold winter day. Warms you right up. In addition to tropical plants are amazing. The cacti in particular - incredible how they can grow them.
  • Very nice place to visit. It is a small tropical park with wonderful tropical plants and amazing birds - parrots and Nelson birds. The parrots are big and awesome. There are sits in the park to sit and relax. But due to a small area it's crowdy but anyway is a great place to visit with kids.
  • A great place to visit with the gf on a rainy day. Lots of neat plants, trees and birds to see. Inside is very warm so leave your jacket in your vehicle.
  • The bloedel conservatory is very cool and worth a visit. The cost is low while the excitement is high. There are plenty of awesome tropical plants to observe. They have 20+ species of birds flying around that you can find with the help of their bird guide. They also have a self guided tour that is interesting and informational. It is a very fun adventure if you're into birds and/or plants.
