    A hidden gem!
    This place is amazing! We made a day of it and had lunch at Seasons afterwards and it was such a memorable, fun day. I’ve been to Vancouver so many times and had never visited the conservatory before. My mom and I went and had a lovely time. I will definitely be back with my children next time we’re in town! Very inexpensive too.

    Great place if you love colourful plants/birds
    A beautiful conservatory, full of amazing flowers/plants/trees with the added attraction of some very colourful/entertaining birds, especially the cockatoo who shouts "peek a boo" at regular intervals. It was lovely to watch this bird being groomed/stroked through all her(?) feathers by a very caring keeper(?) as the bird obviously enjoyed the whole experience. Also lots of small, free flying birds in the canopy if you took the time to search for them, although the very approachable/informative volunteer guide I had the pleasure to talk with informed me there were not as many as there were pre-Covid. I spent a most enjoyable couple of hours here. Only the unseasonably warm, sunny October day made me spend less time than I would have liked. I imagine it's even more appealing on a wet or cold day.

    Well-presented Floral Conservatory
    I enjoyed my visit to the Conservatory. It was $5.50 and really worth twice the admission charge. It consists of a tropical garden/jungle with various species of birds from warmer and more humid climes. It was interesting and educational and suitable for both young and old. It is accessible, however it is possible that those with breathing conditions may find the humidity oppressive.

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.
