Being going to the park over the past 15 yrs... and always come back! From amazing views to the city to its espetacular gardens, QE has it all.

beautiful park to walk around specially if you are into nature photography. You can also visit the Bloedel Conservatory situated in its center. It is a pity that almost all parking are pay parking!

It's fantastic to have such excellent green spaces so close to the city. Hop on a SkyTrain from Downtown and it won't be long til you get here. Includes the bird sanctuary, which is also worth a visit, and combines excellent views of the city, sea and mountains.

Oh boy, I'm spilling the beans now. After 9 days in Vancouver, and visiting all the over-rated tourist traps (such as Butchart Gardens, yawn....), this place was phenomenal! REAL beauty, much better loved/taken care of/respected than the other places, incredible restaurant and view, etc. !! BEST. KEPT. SECRET. So why do I spill the beans? I want other travelers to...

We visit Q.E. Park every year for the Cherry Blossoms. Last year around March 15, this year April 13, 2017. What a year, weather wise 2016- 2017 has been! If you are not from the city, you may not know that Vancouver has had one of the coldest, wettest and dreariest winters on record. I would judge that the growing... More

A beautiful spring visit to a park with flowers and trees starting to bloom in every direction. Lots of families and groups visiting and enjoying the sights. The indoor botanical garden was a total treat, a beautiful visit for all ages to experience.

What a beautiful park. We were there in May and the gardens were beautiful. Spend some time walking the trails in the old quarry. The Bloedel conservatory is worth a visit also.

I have lived not far from Queen Elizabeth park for many years and I have to say that in my travels I have not seen a park to match this calibre in a very long time. Built on a mount in the middle of a nice residential area and very close to the famed Van Dusen gardens, Queen Elizabeth Park... More

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

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.
