i truly enjoy the cool comfort of a walk in the park. Many of the trails here are leash optional and dog owners are fully into that around here. be prepared if you are not a dog lover. Personally just got stared down by a very large, growling doberman and that was not terribly comfortable - and i like dogs.... More

Miles of forest trails wander near the sea and a 20 minute ride from downtown Vancouver. Located on the fringe of UBC.

We rented bikes for the day and drove over to Kitsilano. We heard about this beautiful park, but nothing prepaired us for this gorgeous wood. We were completely immersed by trees and green. A green gem!

This park is incredible: a little piece of rainforest nestled up against UBC. It's a fabulous place for trail running. Beware of off-leash dogs. There are a lot of designated off-leash areas, but a lot of people let their dogs run wild in on-leash or no-dogs areas as well, which can be a nuisance for runners and mountain bikers. For... More

A great place to take your dog off leash on a hot day. There are lots of trails, lots of trees and lots of friendly dogs

My dog and I both love walking here. Good mix of no dog trails, dogs allowed on leash, and leash optional trails so that everyone can enjoy. It's really far from my house but it's worth the drive for the incredible trees and scenery that make you feel like you're out in the woods somewhere instead of in the middle... More

Great park. Hiking trails are wonderful and the giant trees make you feel like you are in a jack and the beanstalk movie set. Really relaxing and uplifting. Drawback is it seems everyone lets their dogs run loose through there. A drawback when you are relaxing enjoying the fresh air, and a four legged friend comes charging at you.

This is a precious tract of semi-wild greenspace. It is a mature forest between city and university crisscrossed with trails and paths.

The park itself, while not quite as lovely as Stanley Park, is a gem within the city. Trails are reasonably well-marked and the park is easily accessible. However, it appears that many people hike with their dogs off-leash and have little voice control of them, despite signage stating that they need to be leashed. We abide by the rules and... More

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
