  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Looks small from the outside but lots of amazing plants and birds to see on the inside. Definitely worth the 6.50 entry free.
  • Nice little place to visit on a rainy day. It's well priced and keeps you entertained for an hour or so as you stroll around looking at the nice birds. It's a pretty small area though so don't expect to spend too long here.
  • I had so much fun here. Take your time and try to find all the birds on the list, or just hang out on a bench and enjoy the warm climate and relax while listening to the birds chirping.
