Queen Elizabeth Park with Bloedel Conservatory in the background

Bloedel Conservatory

Bloedel Conservatory is a domed lush paradise located in Queen Elizabeth Park atop the City of Vancouver’s highest point. More than 100 exotic birds, and 500 exotic plants and flowers thrive within its temperature-controlled environment.

Constructed through a very generous donation from Prentice Bloedel, Bloedel was dedicated at its opening in 1969 “to a better appreciation and understanding of the world of plants."

Designated as a heritage building, it is jointly operated by Vancouver Park Board and the Vancouver Botanical Garden Association. Together, these partners also operate VanDusen Botanical Garden.

Uncle Fester returns to Bloedel Conservatory

Uncle Fester has returned to Bloedel, but looks a little different this time around. In 2018 and 2021, visitors saw Uncle Fester as a large stinky flower. For the first time ever, Uncle Fester is on display during the leaf stage of its life cycle.
