  • Lovely beach for the summertime. Nothing extraordinary, but there is a nice playground and a really beautiful pool. Lots of grass for people who like to set up blankets for a barbecue or a picnic, and nice willow trees for shade in the summer. You can practically spend the whole day in kitsilano beach, as there are also food places nearby. If you live somewhere in greater Vancouver, definitely give this beach a go!
  • A beautiful beach in Kitsilano Vancouver great view of the ocean. The only problem with the view of the ocean are the freight ships. Beautiful playground for children. Also an awesome walk around the beach with great scenery. The cute thing they have added there are palm trees and yes they're real. If you're planning on visiting Vancouver and wanting to visit the beach check out Kitsilano Beach and you're surely not be disappointed.
  • Very relaxing place, with amazing views of the shipping lane, West Vancouver, and downtown. Interesting sitting here and people-watching. And the abundance of dogs is great too. Loved being here.
  • Beautiful scenery, Beach and Mountain Views. Kids play area, restrooms and plenty of picnic space. Good spot for even walking and free parking near by.
  • $3.50/ hr to park at a Beach.. I thought we the people own the Earth if anyone does.. and yet we are charged to park on our own property.. we can change this if we all stand together as One
