Sitting atop the highest point in Vancouver is the triodetic dome of the Bloedel Floral Conservatory, one of Vancouver’s most popular attractions and the city’s only “garden under glass.”

Part of Queen Elizabeth Park, the Conservatory sees over 6 million visitors a year and is one of my favourite things about the park.

Inside the Bloedel Floral Conservatory, a pathway guides you through the lush, verdant interior, home to over 500 tropical flowers and plants from around the world. There are also 100 free-flying, exotic birds in the Conservatory, including Charlie the Cockatoo.

I included Bloedel on my Top 10 Things to Do on a Rainy Day in Vancouver, but it’s really a fun destination whatever the weather or time of year. Since it’s part of Queen Elizabeth Park, it’s easy to make a day-trip out of your visit: Queen E is home to gorgeous gardens, golf courses, lawn bowling, tennis courts, and some of the best views in the entire city!

    I am so pleased that this important indoor garden was not closed. Many of the plants very old and irreplaceable. My husband and I have been going to this
    gorgeous landmark since we newly weds!
