    Bloedal is located inside Queen Elizabeth Park which is one of the main parks in Vancouver and its a great park to visit. Bloedal is a conservatory, so there are various birds and plants (tropical) for you to review and great for kids to see the birds. It's quite hot inside, a little crowded because its a small space so I would recommend going when they open to avoid crowds, especially with kids.

    a little piece of tropical paradise
    The conservatory holds a special place in my heart. I used to go all the time with my young daughter and last weekend i went again for the first time in years. It’s still so special. I am a gardener by trade so i admire the ever changing plant choices and combinations, but all the parrots and other birds flitting about make this place make it a wee wonder in a busy city. Go on a cold day and transport yourself into a tropical paradise...even if it’s just for 40 minutes!

    Such a fun activity!
    This activity exceeded our expectations! The place inside is so beautiful and peacful, you truly feel like you are in a different part of the world. We came to mostly see the birds and parrots, but were happy to see a lot of plants, and special/exoticl trees ( like the vanilla tree) . The gentleman at the entrance was also very very friendly

I was disappointed as I had hoped for more free flying birds instead of the macaws etc being on perches. It was also smaller than I had anticipated.

Very very small, but lively conservatory. They have ~10 different big birds that all have their wings cut so they cannot fly, they just hang around and climb in their branches. All kinds of flowers, plants and trees, I had never seen bananas growing before, so that was a thing. They seemed to have a mouse problem, but for me it just added value to see those little guys running around, probably not so much fun for the management.

If you're a plant and flower lover, then visiting this small conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park is a must. It's got a lovely collection of both, plus colorful birds you can have photos with.

I’ve been in other conservatories in smaller cities that were far larger. The plantings were beautiful and the parrots and koi were pretty enough, but we walked slowly through, examining many of the specimens and were done in about 15 minutes. I’d thought there would be more free-flying, smaller birds but it was only the parrots sitting stationery on their posts. Nice view of the city, nice gardens out front, but the conservatory itself was a little underwhelming.

The Bloedel conservatory is unique as in all the birds inside, are rescue birds, and one bird has its own trust fund ans its owner takes it for a spa once a month! It is quite a walk from the King Edward station.(expo line) It's flat, but still DON"T walk into Queen ELizabeth park directly on W 29st traffice light junction. The directions to the Bloedel Conservatory are for drivers. It will be an up hill walk from the road (the conservatory is on top of the hill) but follow the directions to the garderns which are very colourful and don't miss the sculpture Love in the rain with all the locks. The walk down from the is easier. The conservatory does sell a few drinks etc but most faciities are outside the centre. If you take the bus there, take bus #50 False Creek SOuth from Waterfront station bayb 3 in front of the station. It changes to #15 CAMBIE when it gets to Olympic Village, but if the driver lets you stay ( we had no issue as we had day passes) get off at Cambie and 33rd Avenue as this is MUCH closer to the path to the conservatory. There are few, if any maps and lots of facilities in the park such as mini golf, tennis and golf courses. On a hot day, take a hat!

The conservatory had lots of interesting features, there are many parrots and cockatoos, they also have ponds with koi carp and a vast array of plants and tree, well worth a visit.

We spent about an hour here on a rainy day. Saw many beautiful birds and interesting plants. It is on the small side but well worth a visit. The views of the gardens and city were spectacular.

We were standing outside, contemplating the massive dome, when someone stopped and advised us quite fervently to go in. We took their advice and were richly rewarded.
Such a beautiful, calming place to wander around and so fun to spot all the creatures flying and scurrying about.
We went on a very hot day and it was actually very refreshing inside, so don't let that put you off.
