Situated at the highest point in Vancouver, the Blodel Conservatory is one of my favorite places to escape for an hour or two - especially on a rainy Vancouver day! Indoor tropical paradise with free-flying exotic birds including the shy, elusive, colorful Chinese Exotic plants and flowers thrive in this temperature-controlled dome. Very reasonable admission prices or better yet buy... More

There are exotic tropical birds and plants here that you'll never see anywhere else. I go back often and am always delighted. If you can find a time when it's not too busy, it can be very peaceful as well as beautiful.

This is a tropic escape in Vancouver full of a wide selection of birds flying around. It is located on the highest hill in Vancouver giving a great panoramic view. A visit is self guided as you wander through looking at tropical plants and birds.

We like to go up to the park to see the view of downtown when the weather is nice and this time around, we went to the conservatory for the first time. It is not huge, but watching the birds and taking pictures was really fun. They had quite a lot of exotic birds and it seems to be also... More

If you love exotic birds in (close to) tropical surroundings then you will need to spend some time here. It is necessarily warm and suitably humid so your glasses 👓 will steam up at first. When you recover from this and you pay the quite reasonable fee of $6.75 each (for most people). Then do take your time and move... More

Nice place to visit - especially when it's a bit murky outside. Value is very good and is cheap to get in. Inside, plants, trees and birds are interesting. There was volunteer staff there to ask questions etc. For the festive period there were also things for the kids to spot. The walk here if it's snowing is a bit... More

I went here with friends during the winter. There is a walk from the parking lot, which was not taken care of, was very icy and not very well lit. We approached the conservatory and there was a huge lineup for an outdoor ferris wheel which overlooked a beautiful view. This looked ideal for families or perhaps couples on a... More

If you are having a bad day take a trip here and sit on a bench. The grey rainy days are a bit much so this place offers an escape. The birds and plants are all donated and uses volunteer power. This is an expensive piece of real estate so developers were trying to get it torn down. Please support... More

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighbourhood Profile
Shaughnessy
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
