  • Beautiful beautiful park with lots of amazing trails. My favourite place to socialize and walk my dog off leash. Some trails are leash optional while some are leash required. Keep an eye for the sign. Because the cyclists share the trails, Pacific Spirit might not be the best place for a dog who is reactive to bicycles.
  • Fantastic beach in beautiful BC! No clothing needed. You can come as Adam and Eve. The water temperature is cold. Around 14 Celcuis is my guess. Disclaimer: you gotta be fit for the stairs. I had to stop 3 times on the way up. But would do it again for sure
  • Great trails for a run or hike. Very easy and short, great for walking dogs and having a slow walk with friends or loved ones. Can check out UBC as well!
  • 20 check-ins Great park for an afternoon walk and is usually less crowded than Stanley Park. All the trails are very easy hiking, none of the trails are really difficult. The best trail is the Canyon loop trail that starts at Spanish Banks Beach. This trail has many steps at the beginning and some may think this is challenging which could be if you never hiked before or non active. This is good place to start if you come in your car. Lots of nice views around the canyon. Also the trails south of W16th avenue are quite good, especially the sword fern trail.
  • A lovely forest hike in a park very close to downtown. Majestic trees and well preserved nature. Relaxing and refreshing I enjoyed it very much.
