We were told that BC Tourism Challenge would not be allowed in on the weekend as it was too busy.
So that is what I will tell my clients. Don't go on the weekend. Staff are rude and the place is too crowded.

We stopped in the conservatory because it was winter and there was nothing blooming in the park. The conservatory is small, you basically do a loop around the building. There are definitely impressive plants and a variety of tropical birds. It's probably a little more expensive than I think it should be but I suppose you're putting it to a decent cause and an educational experience. The plants and flowers inside were very vibrant - the majority of them look fake but they are just healthy and thriving!

Whilst I really enjoyed this indoor tropical garden, I was a little disappointed by the aviary aspect. It was not quite as per advertising - "free flying tropical birds". The tropical birds were in various locations on the one-way route through the lush gardens, and they did not fly - wings clipped? They were beautiful and colourful and lovely to admire, just not how I had imaged the scene. I only spotted a few other birds. I'm not sure where the "over 100 exotic birds" were hiding. The tropical plants in the garden were beautifully landscaped. It was still a worthwhile experience.

I enjoyed my visit to the Conservatory. It was $5.50 and really worth twice the admission charge. It consists of a tropical garden/jungle with various species of birds from warmer and more humid climes. It was interesting and educational and suitable for both young and old. It is accessible, however it is possible that those with breathing conditions may find the humidity oppressive.

A beautiful conservatory, full of amazing flowers/plants/trees with the added attraction of some very colourful/entertaining birds, especially the cockatoo who shouts "peek a boo" at regular intervals. It was lovely to watch this bird being groomed/stroked through all her(?) feathers by a very caring keeper(?) as the bird obviously enjoyed the whole experience. Also lots of small, free flying birds in the canopy if you took the time to search for them, although the very approachable/informative volunteer guide I had the pleasure to talk with informed me there were not as many as there were pre-Covid. I spent a most enjoyable couple of hours here. Only the unseasonably warm, sunny October day made me spend less time than I would have liked. I imagine it's even more appealing on a wet or cold day.

I was disappointed as I had hoped for more free flying birds instead of the macaws etc being on perches. It was also smaller than I had anticipated.

Very very small, but lively conservatory. They have ~10 different big birds that all have their wings cut so they cannot fly, they just hang around and climb in their branches. All kinds of flowers, plants and trees, I had never seen bananas growing before, so that was a thing. They seemed to have a mouse problem, but for me it just added value to see those little guys running around, probably not so much fun for the management.

If you're a plant and flower lover, then visiting this small conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park is a must. It's got a lovely collection of both, plus colorful birds you can have photos with.

I’ve been in other conservatories in smaller cities that were far larger. The plantings were beautiful and the parrots and koi were pretty enough, but we walked slowly through, examining many of the specimens and were done in about 15 minutes. I’d thought there would be more free-flying, smaller birds but it was only the parrots sitting stationery on their posts. Nice view of the city, nice gardens out front, but the conservatory itself was a little underwhelming.
