Super space, had both the Heron shelters. There were 2 large BBQ grills (charcoal), 2 sinks, huge counters, picnic tables, and lots of electric plugs. All covered! Well the BBQ grills weren't covered (* Lots of open grass area around the shelters to play games. Everyone really enjoyed the space.

My sister and I came by for a look see and then returned a few days later with our spouses for a picnic under the big shade trees. There is lots of grass for the kids to run and play and a sandy beach by the lake. I hope to bring the grandkids later this summer.

I had a dog but could not take it to the developed area. Fortunately, I found shaded parking. The lake is perfect for the regatta

I often bike the highway that leads out of downtown Vancouver to this park. This is a good place to kayak or just lay in the sun in a beach environment. There are bbq pits and picnic benches. There is grass up to the lake front so it is a good place to lay out a blanket and relax. Most... More

We took our Chinese exchange students for their first rides in canoe's. The park is huge and there is plenty of room to run. The facilities are 1st class and plenty of barbecues are spread around the park.

Perfect place to take kids learning to ride a bike - long, paved, flat bike path away from cars. The bike path connects Vancouver Lake Park and Frenchman's Bay Park. Vancouver Lake is a great place to walk, picnic, fly kites, clean playgrounds and bathrooms.

Big calm lake perfect for beginning kayaking and canoeing. Large sandy beach perfect for kids, lots of shade and grass too. Perfect for family picnics, or "just a day a the beach". Water gets warmer quicker then nearby rivers. And there is lots of parking.

This lovely little park is a perfect place to sit alone and relax by the water. There is a large sand beach where kids were playing and then the green park to sit in the sun on the grass or under the large trees when share is required. Perfect for a picnic, family gathering or alone time. I watched the... More
