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. Where else can you take a stroll through a simulated tropical rainforest paradise and then explore the subtropic and desert climate zones, all in the same place?
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.
