If you are a bird lover, like gardens, nice views, cheap admission, then this is the place for you.

It is situated on a hill in Queen Elizabeth Park, easy to reach by a city bus. Inside the Conservatory the birds are wild, there are parrots and cockatoos that talk.
Over 100 birds live in here. There are also 500plants.

It is a beautifuly laid out, climate controlled environment that creates a paradise under the dome. In this beautiful setting, the pathway meanders around through lush tropical gardens. Just sit and relax for a while, and see how many birds there are.
This really is "Vancouvers tropical paradise"
