On a hot Vancouver day it would be a welcome sight depending on water temperature. It is wide, long and calm, with plenty of room. It is quite a walk from Vancouver but parking is not too far away. A good spot for a mid-jog...More

Amazing clean, sandy beach with toilets and cafe. A good cycle stop too. Lots of logs to shelter from. Watch the seaplanes dance ahead along with eagles fishing in front of you.

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.
