The Hottest Attraction in Town??

Bloedel Gets Cooled Down!!

This past week the power outages in south Vancouver gave rise to some creative problem solving at the Bloedel Floral Conservatory by QE Park Supervisor Alex Downie. Because of its location at the very top of QE Park, one of the hottest days of summer gave considerable concern for all the living plants and birds inside this giant glasshouse. The Vancouver Fire Department came to the rescue by hosing a cascade of cold water on the dome which brought the temp down to a reasonable level until the power returned.

The proposal to save Bloedel Conservatory will hopefully be officially approved on September 20th by the Park Board.

We like being the Hottest Attraction in town, but not quite so literally!
