This is a tiny cliffside park with access to the beach and scuba diving sites. Beautiful panoramic views of Howe Sound and Bowen Island can be found here, as well as grassy areas and picnic sites. It's a beautiful quick photo op for those visiting Horseshoe Bay.

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.

I often work near this park and this is definitely my favourite spot to have lunch. Quiet on weekdays with plenty of parking, less so on weekends in the summer. Washroom nearby and lots of little trails to explore. Fun to walk out to the "island," just watch the tide.

If you decide to explore West Vancouver area, Whytecliff Park is a definite must-see. It's just a couple of minutes drive to Horseshoe Bay. The park has a wonderful meadow where people are picnicking or doing BBQ. There are a few tables and benches, but overall people bring their own chairs and blankets. There is a great playground and a... More
