A Success Story: The Bloedel Conservatory: A Tour of the Conservatory and Queen Elizabeth Park

In 2010 The Bloedel Conservatory, a prominent feature in Queen Elizabeth Park, was on Heritage Vancouver’s Top Ten Endangered list.  Thanks to the work of many community members and “ Friends of the Bloedel”, the Conservatory is no longer threatened.  As a signal that its future is secure, the City is currently replacing the acrylic panels that make up the iconic domed roof. The roof is expected to be completed by end of summer 2014.

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.
