Queen Elizabeth Park is such a gem. Don't miss it! It's a beautiful spot, gorgeous flowers and trees and view of nature, yet very easy access via Vancouver public transportation. There is a small quarry and a large quarry, both very picturesque, and both in close proximity to one another. I'm not a very active person, not a hardcore hiker... More

Spent about 2 hrs visiting this place. It offers very nice walk. Also we visited the Queen Elizabeth Park Bloedel Conservatory which is an indoor tropical garden in this park.

The gardens are well layed out and the view of Vancouver is exspansive. Annuals were beginning to push up. The landscaping of the old quarry area with its paths was the most attractive. Will have to return when full bloom is on and take in the conservatory.

What a wonderful location. The outside gardens are spectacular, with many unusual and beautifully organized plantings. I'm sure it changes all through the seasons. The views are terrific. And don't miss the conservatory, where you can see not only rare and beautiful plants but loads of small animals and birds, with no glass or cages between you and them. You... More

We visited this place just after a major snowfall. We had hoped the warm weather would melt the snow on the trails, but the place was just too slippery to explore. We stayed on the upper trails and enjoyed the view from there. We will come back in better weather.

This is a beautiful place to go in the summer. The views from the top of the hill of Vancouver and the surrounding area are magnificent. The park has many beautiful flowers and a fun waterpark for the children to cool off in the summer.

This is prime Vancouver realestate with panoramic vistas across the city in all directions. Stone was originally auarried here which left an amazing landscape over which an incredible gardens was created. Perhaps best of all the surprises that await you is an amazing geodesic dome of glass under. Whose canopy a veritable tropical rainforest florousishes complete with exotic birds. Heaven... More

As a local, I think the highlight of the park is the Bloedel Conservatory. The actual park is large and colourful and has places for kids to run around. There is also a good restaurant, but a bit pricey to take children there. Howver, the Conservatory is well worth a visit. It houses not only plants and trees, but also... More

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighbourhood Profile
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
