Vancouver Travel: Queen Elizabeth Park

Attention: Click here to view a mobile-friendly version.

At 152 meters above sea level, Queen Elizabeth Park (or QE Park best of the area) is the highest point in Vancouver and makes for spectacular views of the park, city, and mountains on the North Shore.

The 52-hectare park is home to the Bloedel Conservatory. There is also a gorgeously landscaped quarry garden, the arboretum with its collection of exotic and native trees, sculptures including one by internationally renowned artist Henry Moore, and diverse recreational offerings such as tennis, lawn bowling and pitch & putt. The park is also the perfect setting for fine dining at Seasons in the Park, a picnic or stargazing!

How to Get There

If you use public transit system like I do, here is the way to get there:
  • Taking Canada Line Skytrain to the King Edward Station
  •  Walking south towards the Park along Cambie St
You can also read the official site for more directional details.


Below photos were taken on two days (07/28 and 07/29) in 2017.  On both days, the weather (temperature: 24°C) was great.  The pictures are ordered roughly by the route of my visit:
  • Duck pond
  • Small Quarry Garden
  • City and Mountain View from the Top
  • Large Quarry Garden
