Flowers run riot in this 52-hectare (130-acre) green space on a hill that is the city’s highest point south of downtown (it’s thought to be an extinct volcano). The big attraction is the gorgeously landscaped, flower-filled quarry garden, but the arboretum, featuring trees from all over the world, is also a big draw, as are the Henry Moore sculptures that dot the place. There are also areas for lawn bowling, tennis, disc golf, pitch-and-putt, and picnicking. The dome-shaped Bloedel Conservatory, which stands next to the quarry garden, houses a tropical rainforest with more than 100 free-flying tropical birds.
