  • A lovely ocean front park in North Vancouver. It has some amazing native art including totem poles and a hand carved canoe. There is also a series of trails along the water connecting to a smaller park.
  • Easy walking trails, multiple accesses to beaches, large, active children's playground, clean public washrooms, ample parking, grounds are well groomed, comfortable picnic area and dogs allowed (on leash).
  • 🍂What a beautiful and peaceful park. I arrived after 7:00 pm. It's the perfect place for a picnic, a walk along the beach and to recharge. The water at night looks just astonishing. It has some magical spots!🔦Bring you flashlight if your dropping by after the sunset. 🍃
  • Love this park. Being close to this place is a bonus. Good for picnincs and gatherings and boating or Kayaking. There's even a great Burger place west of the park that's open occasionally. Great views all around. Dog friendly as well. A few easy trails as well with a volleyball/badminton net. Children's playground on the same patch of grass too.
  • Love this park! Perfect for hiking, picnics, kayaking and for kids too. It's especially beautiful in fall and there's lots of parking spots. Good place to spend the day.
