A large and diverse botanical park at the western edge of Vancouver, by the Univ. of B.C. Lots of trails, and beach area. The latter, Wreck Beach, is the "hanging out" spot for nudists.... so be forewarned of this aspect. We avoided going there. Amazing to have such an expansive green space in this Park. Lots of places to park,... More

This is a troublesome review for me. The park has an abundance of trails, used by horseriders, dog walkers, joggers, walkers. They are very beautiful and well worth traversing. However. An unsolved murder of a jogging woman and the fact that homeless people live in the forest bring to mind the maxim of the RCMP: don't be afraid, be aware.... More

Good ️hike and enjoyable time. But way too many Mosquitos! Bring your repellant! My wife is allergic to mosquitos so it turned out a mediocre experience really quickly- having said that, if you don't care about insects, it's a good hike

We were staying at UBC and drove along this park and then got down for a short walk. It has beautiful trails and really awesome trails. On one side one can see the bay and city of Vancouver. There are lots of cyclists and dogs. Lovely way to enjoy the beautiful Douglas firs along the trails.

Maps are available on line or at the park. This is the best place to walk in Vancouver. If you want a short or long walk this is the place to go. Rain, the trees keep you dry, Sun, you are in shade. Dog friendly, there are many paths that are bike and horse free, on leash and off leash.... More

Awesome park and perfect on hot summer days. It's a nice climate in the woods. We have done the suggested route from vancouvertrails.com. It was a beautiful hike and all trails (in the park, on the coast partly) could be done with a stroller.

Hi Ho hi Ho. Nice trails and abundant green space in the city of glass and steel. We had a great couple plus hours hiking and walking in the woods. Nice.

gorgeous gorgeous park. Lots of people walking around. Big trees. Twilight filmed here I believe. Overall, a joy, not much change in elevation, so it's just a simple walk.

Really beautiful, partly wild rain forest, reachable with public transport (bus). Many paths for hiking, big beautiful trees, wild died trees lying on the ground in transition for something new. Especially a good place on hot, muggy days with smoke coming in from forest fires. Very good filter facility, thanks nature and trees !

Pleasant unexpected preserve in the city. Very large park. Lots of well marked trails throughout the park. Easy hiking and running trails. Cool oasis in the trees to escape the summer heat.
