The Basics

You can visit Queen Elizabeth Park independently or as part of a guided tour. Many sightseeing tours make stops at the park’s highest point, which affords panoramic city views. Thanks to its immaculate floral displays, the park is often included on garden tours, which typically incorporate visits to the VanDusen Botanical Garden and Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden too. The park is also home to the Bloedel Floral Conservatory, which is full of tropical plants, trees, and free-flying birds.

We toured with Sebastian and he was so awesome! He was very helpful and gave us plenty of time at each stop to take photos and see everything. It was a perfect day and this tour made it even better. Great value and we are so pleased that we did it. The van was clean and very comfortable. Highly recommend!

4-Hour Vancouver City Tour with Queen Elizabeth Park
Loved Vancouver. We thought it was great value for money. However Sally our tour guide was far too talkative and kept saying ' and a' far too often. She was a very pleasant lady who obviously loved her job but needs to know when to stop talking too much.

Tour bus driver was really knowledgeable. Visited all of the key places. Stanley Park was just amazing. A good way to work out what to revisit and get your bearings. Thank you to John (the driver/tour guide).

4-Hour Vancouver City Tour with Queen Elizabeth Park
We were expecting a bus tour but we saw a huge empty van waiting for us. I thought it could be because we were accommodated due to a technical error on their part. So it went off as a private tour for our family and it was great! Janice is an excellent tour guide, giving information on each of the sites we visited. Yuri , our driver, is also a friendly and pleasant company. The trip was short and a bit hurried, but overall, it was quite a nice experience !!

When to Get There

The best time to visit the park is in spring and summer when many of the flowers are in full bloom and when Painters’ Corner, an open-air art gallery, is in full swing. This is also when the weather is usually warmest, so you’ll be able to wander around in comfort.

Highlights of the Park

While you’re roaming the park, be on the lookout for several noteworthy sights: the Dancing Waters, near the Bloedel Conservatory, a fountain with 70 jets that shoot water high into the air. In spring and summer, stroll by Painters’ Corner, an open-air space where artists display their works. The park also contains several sculptures of note, including Photo Session by J. Seward Johnson Junior, which depicts a man photographing three subjects, and Knife Edge-Two Piece by Henry Moore, an abstract bronze.
