You’ll never run out of exciting things to do in Vancouver and the Bloedel Conservatory is one of the most popular attractions

Bloedel Conservatory is one of the most popular

attractions in Vancouver, come rain or shine.

 The spectacular triodetic dome capping

 Queen Elizabeth Park is dedicated to the wonders of

 the natural world, with an emphasis on plants

 and birds.

Over 500 different plants from tropical and subtropical

areas of the world are on display, and over 100 birds of

various species call the Bloedel Conservatory home,

free-flying within the spacious plexiglass dome.

Take a stroll through a simulated tropical rainforest

paradise, then explore the subtropic and desert

climate zones.

 

The conservatory was constructed through a very

 generous donation from Prentice Bloedel in 1969.

 

The same donation enabled the Park Board to cover

 the main reservoir atop Queen Elizabeth Park.

 

A visit to Bloedel Conservatory has become a holiday

 tradition as the crowning glory of one of Vancouver’s

 most beautiful parks.

 The stunning Queen Elizabeth Park offers

 breathtaking  views of Vancouver and the Coasts

Mountains on the North shore.

 

The Bloedel Conservatory is located in Queen

Elizabeth Park.

 

Enter Queen Elizabeth Park at 33rd Avenue and

 Cambie Street.

The conservatory is open daily from 10:00 am to

 5:00 pm, except for the early closure (12 noon) on

December 24th, and is closed on December 25th,

 reopening at 10:00 am on December 26th.

 

A modest entrance fee is charged.

 

The Bloedel Conservatory is available for evening

 reception rentals.

A great Gift Shop offers lovely plants for sale.
