5 Star Rating Beautiful park to walk around or go for a run. There are various trails to choose from. The upper parking lot is pay parking which is near the Blodell Conservatory and large water fountain. The park has beautiful foliage and flowers throughout the spring and summer time. On the North side, there is a duck pond. Please do not feed the wildlife as they become dependent on human food rather than their own natural survival. There are many other activities to be done throughout the park such as tennis, running, walking, visiting the conservatory, taking scenic photos, weddings, and more. Every Wednesday morning at 6:29 am, November Project Vancouver does a free fitness boot camp. Just show up in the upper parking lot to join the fun.

5 Star Rating This is a beautiful 130 acre park, that was once a quarry, has spectacular gardens, city views, tennis, pitch and put and a conservatory. The flowering quarry gardens are a popular place to take wedding or family portraits. Don't miss the Henry Moore sculpture. Access to park is free but parking is pricey. Recommend taking rapid transit and walking into the park.

4 Star Rating Beautiful and relaxing park. Make sure you head to the top for a splendid view of Downtown and North Vancouver. Home to the Bloedel Conservatory which is definitely worth its money. Short trails take you past some very nice gardens.

5 Star Rating As a newcomer to Canada, I love how many parks are available around. On top of the list of parks to visit in Vancouver is Queen Elizabeth park. It's truly beautiful. I highly recommend coming during fall when everything is yellow and orange. Be sure to prepare for a lot of walking and wear appropriate shoes.

4 Star Rating Nice park to visit. Parking is not free (like in Stanley Park also). There is one main central place with everything - a water fountain, a big cemented plaza, and a small wedding hall. The Bloedel Conservatory is not too expensive and is worth the money. There is a small pond on the northeastern corner of the park with some nice ducks. No feeding the ducks!
