Metro Vancouver is improving the infrastructure of the Little Mountain Reservoir, located at the top of Queen Elizabeth Park. The upper parking lot in Queen Elizabeth Park will be closed from June 1 until fall 2021. All other parking areas within the park will remain open and temporary parking stalls have been added.

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.
