  • Nice peaceful walk paved walkway by the water. Many many people walk their dogs along here. Enjoyable walk but it is crowded. Flat trail right along the water and well maintained 
  • We did a nice bike ride along the park but discovered that we took a wrong path and were in the off leash area where bikes are not allowed. The signs were confusing if you do not know the area and the...  more »
  • Nice park to walk around in the morning. Good playgrounds and a pretty large off leash dog area as well. 
  • A very beautiful seawall. A great place for a walk. Shops and restaurants just a stones throw. Dog friendly trail. Beautiful parks. And great place for familys
  • Nice amenities. Parking is a mess if lots people are going boating as it lacks adequate parking space for park users, sports facility users, local shopping and there is no proper parking that I've seen for boat trailers to they just block up everything. Excellent modern washroom design at the sports fields that is designed to reduce gender stigma - kudos! Beautiful field hockey-only pitch with several additional multi-sport fields. Unfortunately flooding can be an issue and tournaments cannot use air-horns due to noise bylaws (which makes managing tournies MUCH more difficult than at other locations as players waiting for games have a very hard time hearing). Typicaly a bit cooler than many other fields due to its location right near the ocean.
  • A cute and popular sandy beach park in the city... wheelchair accessible. Nice logs and benches to sit on. The ocean view with sailboats and further out, ships.
  • Nice open park with many fields and a dog park. Pitch and putt course is dun if your try tired of stanely park. Fishing at the mouth of the capilano river might net you a salmon.
  • Awesome! Love the beach here and watch the guys catching crab of the pier. You can see seals and watch the fisherman catch salmon. The volleyball and basketball courts are good and plenty of park to kick a soccer ball around.
