Queen Elizabeth Park information
Lonely Planet review
The city's highest point – it's 167m above sea level and has panoramic views of the mountain-framed downtown skyscrapers – this 52-hectare park claims to house specimens of every tree native to Canada. Sports fields, manicured lawns and two formal gardens keep the locals happy, and you'll likely also see wide-eyed couples posing for their wedding photos.
Check out the synchronized fountains at the park's summit (home to the Bloedel Conservatory), where you'll also find a hulking Henry Moore bronze called Knife Edge – Two Piece . If you want to be taken out to the ball game, the park's recently restored Nat Bailey Stadium is also a popular summer hangout for baseball fans.
