    This garden is a taste of what you will experience when you go to Butchat Gardens on Vancouver Island. All the colors and forms of trees and plants are visible. Some very exotic that they should survive the winter. There was a moment that breathed air and the soft yellow trees sprang like a cascade of gold coins.

    This park was close to where we were staying. It has a beautiful Japanese garden and some lovely water fountains. It also has a small bird sanctuary with some tropical plants (small charge to enter) T...  more »

    Really enjoyed the bird exhibit in the dome. Had a great time trying to find the beautiful birds among the flora. Liked the checklist given at the beginning.  more »

    It's a much loved park in Vancouver. My Canadian friends told me to go back again to see the beautiful fresh spring colours! I thought the Autumn colours are already superb! We are standing on the Highest point in Vancouver looking at the city and the lovely ski trail of the Grouse mountain at the far end! The hothouse has some of the most beautiful birds! It's a delightful mini bird park. Overall, Queen Elizabeth Park small park, but a sweet one. I went to the farmers market very close to the park on the weekend!

    Magnificent blend of colours and aroma. Vibrant landscape. You can enjoy different zones in the garden viz. Sunken garden including the dancing fountain, Japanese garden and rose garden. Kids can enjoy the carousel - 2 $ is the fee. Several boat trips also depart from the garden, bookings can be made at the entrance. Gift shop has got an array of exclusive selection. Dinner is amazing.

    It's best to visit this place maybe early morning to late afternoon. We went here around 10:30am and it's so hot. We were here for around 2 hours. It's a good place to walk around, relax and have a picnic. It's also not that crowded.

    I love a stroll around Queen Elizabeth Park. It's not very big and not really a hike by Vancouver standards. It's just a really lovely little place for a walk and some photos. It's pretty beautiful in the fall.

    This is a very scenic flower garden with walking paths. For the sporty types, there is disc golf, pitch and putt, tennis, and basketball courts available. Large pay parking lot at the top of the park near the conservatory. Smaller free parking lot near the tennis courts and off leash dog area.
