  • I love to run in the parks of Pacific Spirit with my friends and my dog. It is so beautiful to be amongst the trees and lush floral surroundings. 
  • I love the many trails in the Pacific Regional Park, it's a great place to take my dogs for a walk, get lost in thought and get some exercise. 
  • You won't believe you can experience the forest in its natural state so close to the city centre. If you're looking for a chance to experience nature and to get away from the hustle and bustle, this i...  more »

  • Great park that provides you with a short escape from the city. Lots of trails for everyone, all well maintained. Some dog owners should pay more attention to leashed trails vs off leash trails. But no issues for the most part.
  • Such a nice park!! lots of paths inside. Some surprises inside like fallen trees and nice colors. Close from downtown. Lots of spots for parking around it. Its on your way to UBC.
  • An absolutely beautiful park in the city. The trails take you through the beautiful rainforest, and there are perfect beaches surrounding the park. There are plenty of dog off-leash trails, and the dogs that visit are very well-behaved.
  • Pacific Spirit Park covers a wide area right next to the urban area of Vancouver. There are many Trails crisscrossing the park. Some allow bicycles and some are designated off-leash for dogs. The trails near Spanish Banks Beach are steeper while the trails off 16th Avenue are quite flat.
  • My dog and I love it here. Great walks, both long and short. Great outdoors in the city!
