Beautiful setting with fantastic views while getting some exercise. Easy for walking or running. If you have children, there is also a children's play area in the middle of the walk. You can start in Dundarave or in Ambleside. As well, you can extend your walk or run as well.

One of the most scenic routes for a short 3.65 Km / 2.28 Mile Run or Walk. Gorgoeus sunsets over Vancouver Island. Summer months, one can watch cruise ships go by. There is a railway track running alongside the seawall and many times a day. It is a nice experience to watch the trains, especially the Rocky / Whistler Mountaineer... More

Starting from the Ambleside park westward the seawall offers the most beautiful views of the English bey, Burard inlet, Lions gate bridge, Stanley park, Vancouver and the Pacific ocean. I especially love walking there in the afternoon as well as early morning.

This walk is nice but more for the individual who wants to get out and take stroll. The views are nothing like the views from Stanley park seawall. The walk is about 5 km

Early mornings and around dinner time is the best time to walk the sea wall off Ambleside beach and Dundarave Beach in West Vancouver BC. The best part of the sea wall is that there is a off-leash dog walk behind the fence (running parallel to the human sea walk) which allows people to stroll unencumbered by dog leashes and... More

What could be better than a leisurely stroll, walk or jog along the water? The sea wall is a go-to for all ages and ability levels. Go alone or join your friends as you enjoy the nature around you. A beautiful view of Stanley Park and Downtown Vancouver amplified by the lovely ocean scent. You can also stop along the... More

I really shouldn't tell people because everyone will be there - but the best time to visit the seawall for a bike ride is first thing in the morning. We get up early and ride the seawall before too many people are up and at it. You can stop where you want and ride as fast or as slow as... More

A really amazing location and if you're not from West Vancouver, it's worth the trip. Be careful not to annoy the locals though! They take their rules very seriously. That means, dogs only in certain parts of the sea wall and no wheels, except for wheelchairs, of course.
