Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver’s horticultural jewel, is a major draw for floral display enthusiasts and view-seekers, and as a popular backdrop for wedding photos. At 152 metres above sea level, it’s the highest point in Vancouver and makes for spectacular views of the park, city, and mountains on the North Shore.
The 52-hectare park is home to the stunning Bloedel Conservatory. There is also a gorgeously landscaped quarry garden, the arboretum with its collection of exotic and native trees, sculptures including one by internationally renowned artist Henry Moore, and diverse recreational offerings such as tennis, lawn bowling and pitch & putt. The park is also the perfect setting for fine dining at Seasons in the Park, a picnic or stargazing!
Queen Elizabeth Park is in the geographical heart of Vancouver and only 15 minutes by public transit or car from the downtown. Whether you walk, bike, take public transit, or drive, it's easy to get here.
Queen Elizabeth Park is a haven for sightseers, athletes, musicians, artists, families … and everyone else! Roam the grounds, take in the amazing views, enjoy the sculptures or just smell the roses.
With recreational facilities abounding, the more energetic won’t have a problem finding something to do. Enjoy pitch & putt, lawn bowling, tennis, roller hockey, basketball or simply walking the dog.
Step inside and be transported! Enclosed in a triodetic dome, Bloedel Conservatory is a lush year-round tropical garden with dazzling exotic plants, eye-catching birds, and colourful koi fish.
