Queen Elizabeth Park

Sitting at the highest point in Vancouver on an extinct volcano is this green sanctuary offering panoramic views of the city.

Gorgeous gardens and spectacular views of the Vancouver skyline are only some of the reasons the Queen Elizabeth Park remains one of the city's most popular attractions. Take a walk through the park that seamlessly blends nature and culture to create a haven with something for everyone.

Step inside the Bloedel Conservatory and you’ll be whisked into a lush tropical paradise filled with exotic plants, free-flying birds, and colourful koi fish, regardless of temperature outside the massive dome.

The 52-hectare park is home to a variety of beautifully landscaped gardens that are some of the finest in the world. Cross an arching bridge over a stony stream in the North Quarry Garden while admiring its oriental horticultural influences or visit the arboretum to see species native to Canada. Marvel at the Dancing Waters fountain, as well as the public artworks and impressive sculptures dotted throughout the gardens. The resident arborist occasionally leads walks for visitors. Check availability ahead of your visit.

Wander about Painters Corner to watch artists hard at work. All the pieces on display are original works of the artists and are for sale. For a more personal souvenir, you can have your portrait sketched.

Hire a golf club and tee off at the 18-hole pitch and putt course, where green fees vary according to time of day and the age of the player. In winter, join the locals tobogganing down the snow-covered slopes of the volcano. Plenty of spots across the park provide picnickers with picturesque places to lay down a rug but there is also a designated picnic area among the Arboretum trees just west of the duck pond.

Located on Cambie Street in downtown Vancouver, Queen Elizabeth Park is easily reached on foot, by bike, car or public transport. Parking is available but prices vary seasonally. The Bloedel Conservatory is open daily except for Christmas Day. The Pitch and Putt is also open daily, excluding the months of December and January.
