In my opinion THE most beatiful place in Vancouver! We walked on the rocks and saw seals (babie seals also) just relaxing in the sun! They looked very used to having people around them. We simply stayed there for a couple hours admiring the ocean and seing more seals.... We were hoping to see whales, but maybe next time. We... More

I have been going to Whytecliff Park for decades, I started as a child and I still go as an adult and it hasn't changed at all (very little). It is a great place to swim, jump off a cliff (mind you I don't jump from as high as I did as a kid), scuba dive, hike, picnic, listen to... More

Great little spot to hang out at on a sunny afternoon. A rather large rock extends out into the water, great place to chill out and jump into the water from.

I'm from the North shore and this was my childhood playground. It makes me so sad to see that the water all around Vancouver has been contaminated and is no longer fit for swimming (at least for now). We flew to Vancouver on July 2nd. There were signs saying that there has been an oil spill in the Burrard inlet... More

We visited this lovely park on a sunny day in July 2015. It was a shame that a swimming advisory was in place to state there were high levels of bacteria in the sea. (Which is why we didn't give 5 stars) We would have swam, others did but we didn't want to take the risk. It did not spoil... More

One of many beautiful parks in West Vancouver. Whytecliff Park is a special favourite of SCUBA divers because of the rich marine life. My son used to dive there weekly with his friends before he moved away. There was a huge Pacific red octopus that was a special "friend" that liked to swim with the divers. ~ My husband &... More

This public park has playgrounds for children. I was mostly interested in birds and was rewarded by nesting flickers and a pelagic cormorant feeding chicks. The trees are fantastic. This is typical coastal British Columbia, but oh so gorgeous. My husband enjoyed clamoring about on the rocks. We were there at low tide, so tidal pools and crabs everywhere.
