Queen Elizabeth Park
Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver is one of the city's most visited attractions. These 130 acres in a prime area of Vancouver will see over 6 million visitors annually to its luscious gardens. The gardens which are a main reason for visiting are accompanied by some of the most spectactular views of downtown Vancouver from the highests points within the park itself. Although a wonderful jewel in the crown, the park had began with humble industrial beginings. First as a Basalt quarry and then as a resevoir and then over the decades Queen Elizabeth park was transformed into the beautiful attraction it is today.
As part of the network of Vancouver parks and overseen by the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation this is public park. That means that there is no addmission charge to visit the park. In addition to the beautiful gardens you may also want to visit the Bloedel Conservatory. This recognizable domed building is home to over 100 species of free-flying birds within it's confines. The Bloedel Conservatory is open rain or shine and is a very popular spot for weddings. On the next few pages there are some of the photos that I took when I last visited Queen Elizabeth Park with my family. Pictures are a 1000 words and I hope you enjoy them!
