This is a small conservatory but considering the number of birds that are there it doesn't seem small. I walked around 3 times and found new birds each time.

The entrance fee is $6.50 for adults. It's very warm inside the conservatory. We saw a lot of tropical plants and many birds inside. It would have been nice if the plants are labeled and the birds are identified. Only a select number of them are labeled. I saw a lot of parrots, cockatoos, finches and quails. The birds are...

Loved this place. About $6.50pp to enter, and only need about 30 minutes but the birds are fantastic. If you are a birdwatcher or photographer you will have a great time in the conservatory.

This is a quaint little biodome. I did see some very unique tropical plants from all over the whole world. There are cute birds flying everywhere. The view of the mountains from in front of the facility is stunning!

The birds were beautiful and the interesting notes given around the dome were enlightening. Some of the macaws spoke which was amusing!

This place is like a magical world. It's tropical environment is so cozy against the outside crisp Vancouver air. The birds seem happy flying around and all of the plant life is lush. The flowering banana trees are a special treat.

Within the conservatory are many exotic species of birds and plants the best thing is the tameness of the birds which allow you to take up close and personal photographs. Whilst good does not really have a Canadian flavour.

Be sure to visit this place when at QE park. Nice to see all the beautiful birds and tropical flowers, even pineapples growing. It's reasonably priced to get in. Would also make a great rainy day activity

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.
