Rated 4.6 out of 5

5 Star Rating Absolutely gorgeous park. Lots to see. Also take time to visit the bird/plant observatory on site, I think it was around $6 to get in and a fun way to spend and hour or so.

5 Star Rating It's a much loved park in Vancouver. My Canadian friends told me to go back again to see the beautiful fresh spring colours! I thought the Autumn colours are already superb! We are standing on the Highest point in Vancouver looking at the city and the lovely ski trail of the Grouse mountain at the far end! The hothouse has some of the most beautiful birds! It's a delightful mini bird park. Overall, Queen Elizabeth Park small park, but a sweet one. I went to the farmers market very close to the park on the weekend!

5 Star Rating Great park to visit for a stroll. It's gorgeous during the spring and summer. Parking at the most top is free so go there instead of the sides at the bottom. Slight incline as it is a bit of a hill so good for a bit of a challenge for the elderly and kids.

4 Star Rating The place is so good to walk or hiking, gardens are great and if there is a nice weather you can stay next to the little river and calm down. The observatory is not that impressive, and there are some areas are not clean or built, otherwise there is a lovers zone which is nice because you can hang your lock, but I think is like trying to copy what Paris have. The Spring Lights are nice but so small and not too noisy, like must of the events in Van

4 Star Rating Nice park to visit at anytime of year. There are good views as it is the highest part in Vancouver. The view is kinda restricted due to overgrowth of trees and plants. Snow in winter adds to atmosphere.
