Queen Elizabeth Park

In one of the afternoons of my stay in Vancouver, we did a quick stroll around Queen Elizabeth Park.

They say that what is so special about this park is that it is the highest point in Vancouver, it is around 501ft above sea level (though I didn't really feel that we're that high because of the perfect grading of roads). From here, you can see a bird's eye view of the city and the surrounding mountains.

Here are some of the pictures we took during our quick stroll:

The snow-capped mountains, just magnificent

This is one of the gardens located at Queen Elizabeth Park; this picture was taken in early spring so you would not see much color here. If you plan to go there I think the best time would be late-spring and summer.

One of the unique landmarks that will surely get your attention when you are in Queen Elizabeth Park is the Bloedel Floral Conservatory (it is the one pictured in the background)
