It’s the final weekend of the holidays, which means many holiday events close this weekend. We’re focusing on this inexpensive outing up at Queen Elizabeth Park. But be sure to check out our Holiday Bucket List for more weekend events.

Holiday Heights at Bloedel: Arctic Oasis

A post shared by Polly Chow (@polylicious) on

December 15 – January 7

While there’s no Ferris Wheel this year, there is plenty of holiday cheer up at Queen Elizabeth Park. Warm up inside the Bloedel tropical dome, enjoy the exotic birds, lush gardens and holiday light display. Find all the hidden penguins in the arctic oasis for their holiday-themed scavenger hunt. Enjoy the evening city views and lit fountains at Queen Elizabeth Park.

All at a family-friendly price!

PLUS … Free parking during event hours at the parking lot by the fountains.

But don’t take out word for it! This mom and tot had a wonderful time.

[My daughter] loved scavenger hunting all the beautiful, exotic birds at the Bloedel Conservatory. She kept pointing at the photos on the guide saying ‘I want to find this one!’ one bird after another. It was a nice year end activity followed by a lovely brunch at Seasons in the Park! ~ Polly Chow
