Boring Times at Queen Elizabeth Park Jan 09, 2009
Before I give my little review I thought I would share a fact about this park: it used to be a rock quarry. Vancouver used this site to begin building of the roads. I was glad to hear they made something beautiful out of the site. Nerdy facts and fun things to do there: lawn bowling, frisbee golf, tennis, mini golf, lounging, picnics with picnic baskets, viewing the rose gardens, hanging out, making out at night (heard the view was pretty awesome), playing tag and the list goes on.
Anyhow, I was trying to find some fun and interesting things to do while in Vancouver BC and well anyone who has some Italian in them knows of Bocce ball. My thought while researching things to do was to go to Queen Elizabeth Park because they have lawn bowling, 'close enough to bocce ball I thought to myself'. Sadly, they must have a very serious schedule because it was closed. It was a big let down to go through the trouble to get there and have it be closed.
So we never found the mini golf either and that's probably because of our our exploratory mode being turned off. The park seems pretty big. We did stop and smell the roses, literally. You know how people tell you that you should "stop and smell the roses"? We did that and it was fantastic for all 5 minutes it occurred. In all seriousness they did have a nice rose garden there.
I think that if you enjoy nature, arboretums and all plant life that survives in Canada that this would be a cool place to just go and relax. We didn't get to spend much time here but was pleasant to look at the scenery and smell the roses.
