Queen Elizabeth Park is the highest point within the City of Vancouver proper. Its 52 hectares (~130 acres) of park land are covered with flowers, gardens and trees.
Queen Elizabeth Park
At the top of Queen Elizabeth Park is the Bloedel Conservatory, plus exceptional views of the city and North Shore mountains. The park is free, but you have to pay for the Conservatory which is full of birds and plants and might take you about 20 minutes to get through, depending on how interested you are in tropical plants.
The best times to visit Queen Elizabeth Park are in the spring (for the flowers), the fall (for the autumn leaves), and the summer (when kids like to play in the fountain).
Looking for a great place to get a fancy bite to eat? Then try Seasons in the Park, located right at the top of Queen Elizabeth Park. It’s a highly rated restaurant, and a wonderful place from which to enjoy the views – just be sure to ask the server for a table by the window.
The park also has a great little pitch and putt golf course. Check out Queen Elizabeth Park Pitch & Putt for details.
