We visited Pacific Spirit Regional Park after having had a busy day out already, and the weather being rather damp - but wouldn't have missed it for the world. Absolutely fascinating walk about under those ginormous trees in amongst all that glorious ground cover, large stones and foliage. A most moving and almost ethereal experience in amongst such beauty and... More

A massive park in Vancouver, this park is a major step up from Stanley park because of its size and seclusion from traffic noise. Keep an eye out for owls and keep your dogs on a leash please.

Had the opportunity to stroll through the council trail and it's a great afternoon walk. Doesn't take long, and really gives an authentic West Coast experience. Not a difficult trail at all. Plenty of people biking, jogging, and walking their dogs.

What other city our size has TWO amazing large parks. Pacific Spirit is large, with varied areas, though always treed. Great place for walks almost any time of the year, if you have the proper footgear. There are designated paths for dogs and for bikes, so take care if you want a walk lacking in either of these.

As you weave through the myriad of trails, I swear you feel the trees breathing. Huge towering trees and an indescribable stillness, minutes from the city. Great for a run or a dog-walk, but be sure to bring a map and a friend.

A truly wonderful place to experience and enjoy a unique coastal rainforest experience in a city setting. Pacific Spirit Park is Vancouver's hidden outdoor treasure that is shared quietly and frequently by locals and visitors in surprisingly small numbers throughout the year. The trails are well marked and maintained by dedicated local volunteers.

Popular with cyclists, dog owners, horseback riders, joggers, walkers, and clothing-optional bathers. This park basically separates UBC from Vancouver's west side. The most western portion hosts the iconic wreck beach accessed via steep trails off Marine Drive. The main portion of the park is a series of trails that criss-cross North, South, East, & West from the UBC highway (SW... More

It is rather easy to get turned around in here if you do not have a map, because this park is huge. It is lovely and tranquil.

If you are visiting UBC be sure to spare some time for outdoor activities, possible to go there by bus and choose the track from park information signs if you fallow the track signs impossible to get lost

Pacific Spirit park is my favourite place to go inside of Vancouver. If you get start at the beginning of the park and eventually walk to Wreck or Tower Beach, you will find yourself in a forest of huge cedars, moss, and... total quietness! It's amazing how few people seem to spend time in Pacific Spirit. I would often walk... More
