    Love it. Vaancouver people don't know how lucky they are to have this super park on their doorstep. Lovely trails, Rose garden has some nice roses, but needs attention. The woodland walks are great. Easy to reach for £2 from Vancouvr by no 19 bus.

    Nice place to visit. It’d has a very good market, interesting shops and a good atmosphere. The prices are a bit high, but it is a good place to spend a few hours. Recommended.

    Not only do you get to see some cute otters, you also get to learn about various costal marine life. The aquarium is a must see because of the different exhibits and animals you can learn about, making it perfect for all ages.

    There is parking lots near the aquarium which accept various forms of online payment options or cash. If you want to see the feeding of the otters I do suggest arriving early as it is only a one level option to view it.

    Beautiful and well-maintained garden. A great place for bird-watching. Make sure to pick up the map of what is blooming currently at the garden's entry.
    The staff is friendly and the cafe at the entry has a good selection of snacks and cake.

    The inukshuk is my favourite part. They come from the Inuit culture and were used as a landmark/navigational aid. They also represented hospitality and friendship.

    A visit to this famous urban landmark park was top on our itinerary during our brief trip to Vancouver. Lots of tourists and families visiting on the long holiday weekend when we came. We parked at the big lot next to the Bloedel Conservatory and walked towards the adjacent gardens. The well placed sculptures were quite impressive. The small Quarry Garden was colorful and lush. While the park’s high elevation meant nice panoramic view of the city, it also meant somewhat steep ascent and descent which could be difficult for mobility challenged visitors to navigate. I wish the park could become more disability friend. Better directional signage would help as well.

    Vancouver is a beautiful city with lovely and picturesque waterfront areas both in the north (Canada Place) and south (Granville Island) of downtown. We only had a full single day to spend and you easily spend the day immersing yourself in either area wandering around the shops and restaurants and still get a feel for the city.

    So efficient and fun way to travel across False Creek. Drivers were friendly, did not rush people off or on the ferry and helped me embark and disembark.

    Canada Place Building and the Port of Vancouver are very clean and in a scenic area of Vancouver. There are many interesting things to see and do within walking distance. Many cruise ships sail from here.

    While not wanting to see Vancouver any busier than it already is, I have to say that no trip here is complete without a walk along English Bay. Touch the Pacific, people watch, count the freighters, sit on a log with an ice cream - it's fantastic in a mellow, westy coasty kinda way.

    Popped in for a quick look when passing. Great building, fun round shape with shops inside.

    Recommended when in the area.
