  • This is such a beautiful park full of trees, plants and flowers from all over the world! I especially ─║ove the water falls and trails that wind in and out of each other sometimes going over a little bridge over a creek and sometimes takes you to a lookout point with breathtaking views. I come here often and still can't get enough and will never get bored of it. You can also enjoy it on really hot days because there's lots of shaded areas.
  • Beautiful park and vista of Vancouver. The Celebration Plaza is very nice. I find it amusing that the signs say don't Wade in the fountain but didn't the designers know that's exactly what everyone would do? I saw kids in swimming suits hanging out there. There's no place to eat except the expensive Seasons restaurant up there. The quarry gardens were beautifully done.
  • Hidden gem inside Vancouver. Highly under appreciated park, grounds are expansive, tons of space to run and play, have a picnic under a tree, watch blooming cherry trees in spring. Trails around, into the crater are intricately planted with a wide variety of plants. Great views from top concrete plaza. Favorite location for wedding photos in summertime. Bloedel conservatory has lovely plants and renovated roof, worth a look to see parrots and birds inside. Seasons on the park is a wonderful classy restaurant with great views, try lunch menu if on a budget. Parking is pay by meter but can be found outside park, but be prepared to hike uphill if so inclined.
  • I took my family here after a visit to Stanley Park. Our first stop was the Rose Garden. It was nice but the grass was a bit brown. Then we climbed the hill to the conservatory. The view was fantastic and the conservatory was pleasant, if small. Next we visited the Quarry Garden which was amazing! We wrapped up our visit at the Love Locks Statues.
  • A cute and very accessible park. Located on a hill in the middle of Vancouver, this park is filled with a variety of beautiful and slightly exotic fauna that could keep you wandering for hours. Aside from this, the park has small attractions and mildly kept lawns. Even you're willing to pay you can enjoy the observatory located at the top of the hill. Additionally there are other free attractions such as lawn bowling, a rose garden, and a large fountain. This park would have scored higher, but its main attractions are smaller and less comparable to some more destination worthy parks in the area. A beautiful park to visit if near by and available, but no need venture to far out of your way to visit.
