Rated 4.6 out of 5

5 Star Rating Queen Elizabeth Park offers so much to be enjoyed for so many different people. If you like flowers and plants and free stuff - then you really can't go wrong with the garden here. Kids always enjoy watching the fountain (and running through it...though they're not supposed to). It is the tallest point within the city, so it offers some breathtaking views - particularly at sunset and sunrise. In the summertime, you may also find stands selling organic fruits. And if you are willing to pay $6.75 for the adult admission into the Blodel Observatory, prepare to be wowed by the beautiful birds, plants and flowers inside.

5 Star Rating Love it here. Come often. Amazing views of downtown, the north shore and beautiful gardens. Bloedel Conservatory is nicely priced and will worth a visit.

4 Star Rating Beautiful park in the middle of Vancouver. Lots of fun areas to explore and some cool pokemon (if you are into that), just avoid walking through the "frisbee golf" area, they are rude and aggressive about their made-up sport.

5 Star Rating Just gorgeous. Lots of tourists but it's huge so it doesn't feel crowded. Great view of downtown Vancouver outside the biodome (?) , which is pretty cool itself. Summers have a fun zip line!

5 Star Rating Great place to visit in the evening to have a grand view of the city. Not overly crowded. There are many things to see and to enjoy. I like the garden a lot. The water park is a fun place for kids.
