Queen Elizabeth Park
Would you like to see more of the city? Chose our extended tour, which includes all of the above as well as visits to Granville Island and Queen Elizabeth Park.
Lunch you will spend on Granville Island. Millions of visitors from around the world come here.
The charm of Granville Island lies in its mix of uses. Big box stores are not allowed to open on the island where small merchants rub shoulders with a plethora of art galleries, restaurants, and live performance stages. Granville Island is also home to Canada’s first microbrewery, Granville Island Brewing Co. Over 50 food vendors make Granville Island’s Public Market a culinary destination.
Vancouver’s gardens and parks are famous. If time does not permit you to visit the Butchart Gardens, Queen Elizabeth Park is a worthwhile substitute. Built on a hill, Queen Elizabeth Park offers delightful vistas of downtown Vancouver and the North Shore. Meticulously groomed, the sunken gardens here may not be as spectacular as those in the Butchart Gardens but they are equally as impressive.
We will stroll through Queen Elizabeth Park after lunch.
