this is a small beautiful beach within Stanley Park. It has its own parking lot. We visited during October and the fall colors were stunning. Is connected to the rest of the park by the seawall walking trail.

Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up
close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy
expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views,
beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical
getaway spot for friends and families, especially as
it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its
best equestrian outlets.
