Bloedel Conservatory is a peaceful place in our city, also known as the exotic spot in Vancouver. Home to over 200 different species of birds, 500 different types of flora (a mixture of beautiful plants and flowers), this secret garden is a combination of rainforest habitat and desert "look" terrain. The Conservatory is considered a healing garden; nature is a natural stress reliever, and this place is a natural work of art.

Brand new this year, the City brings us a delightful event, for the 2016 Holiday Season, Holiday Heights. Located at the Peak of Vancouver, overlooking a cascading sea of city lights, Holiday Heights is an event featuring the only Christmas Ferris Wheel in the City. Join the line up to elevate your soul and take your holiday spirit to new heights this holiday season. Our photographer, Joe, captured the holiday magic of this event in photos.

The conservatory is transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with festive decorations, fun festivities, glowing lights and merry music, all wrapped up in a unique, new creation of holiday splendor. We highly recommend attending this event, and taking it all in. Support the City that gives us an innovative, ever evolving place to work and play. When you go, bring a friend and be sure to partake in the Ferris Wheel ride, to get a beautiful view, from this area, overlooking the city.

Is there any better way to see it from here?

Mix your Leisure with Lux, and make a visit to the Seasons in the Park Restaurant. This find, in a charming atmosphere is the perfect spot for a weekend brunch. Head here for some mimosas and good food, prepared by a Seasoned Chef, and then stroll through the garden, afterwards. An even better idea is to turn your Holiday Heights Tickets into a lovely Christmas Gift, Complete with a holiday dinner.

Seasons Restaurant is hosting guests this year for Christmas and New Year’s Eve Dinner.
