Less than two kilometers (1.2 miles) from VanDusen Botanical Garden , this 53-hectare (130-acre) park sits atop 152-meter (500-foot) high Little Mountain, the city’s highest point, with magnificent views of Vancouver  and the Coast Mountains.
Highlights include masses of rhododendrons—a vivid spectacle in May and June—formal flower gardens including a rose garden in the park’s southwest corner; sunken gardens in the old quarry pits; and Bloedel Floral Conservatory (604/257-8570, Mon.–Fri. 9 a.m.–8 p.m. and Sat.–Sun. 10 a.m.–9 p.m. in summer, daily 10 a.m.–5 p.m. the rest of the year, adult $5, senior $3.60, child $2.50), a glass dome enclosing a temperature-controlled, humid tropical jungle. The park’s main entrance is by the junction of 33rd Avenue West and Cambie Street.
