With mild temperatures and a bounty of natural beauty, spring is one of the best times of the year to visit Vancouver. As cherry blossoms line the streets of the city and gardens begin to bloom, there are myriad of ways to step into spring and celebrate the changing of the seasons in the city.

An oasis in the city, VanDusen Botanical Garden features 55 acres of more than 7,500 plant species from around the world. The garden also boasts over 100 cherry blossom trees representing 24 varieties, making it one of the best places in the city to enjoy the spring blossoms.

Sitting at 125 meters above sea level, Queen Elizabeth Park is the highest point in city, offering spectacular views along with a plethora of trees, shrubs, blubs and florals to delight in. Also located within the park is the Bloedel Conservatory, a domed tropical paradise featuring over 100 exotic birds, koi fish and 500 exotic plants.

Cycling or walking through Stanley Park is a quintessential way to experience spring in Vancouver. At 404 acres, Stanley Park is one of the largest urban parks in North American. In addition to the 11-kilometer seawalls that offers spectacular views of the ocean and temperate rainforest, there are several gardens located within the park, including the Stanley Park Rose Garden which features over 3,500 rose buses.
