Thanks to the work of many community members and ‘Friends of the Bloedel’, and the VanDusen Botanical Garden Association, the Conservatory is no longer threatened.
As a signal that its future is secure, the City has recently completed the replacement of all 1490 plexiglass panels that make up the iconic domed roof.
Heritage Vancouver Society and the VanDusen Botanical Garden Association invite you to join Park Board Commissioner, John Coupar and VanDusen Botanical Garden Governor, Vicky Earle for a tour of the Conservatory and Gardens at Queen Elizabeth Park.
Find out about the history of the park and conservatory, the techniques being used to restore the roof and life of the plants and birds that call Bloedel home. Allow time after the tour for a leisurely stroll through the conservatory and the gardens.
