Last time I was there the lake was polluted and signs said enter at your own risk. This lake use to be very clean, and you could rent canoes, paddle boats, windsurf boards, but now it is too bad you can't go into the water. So, if you don't plan on going into the water then just use the park... More

hadn't been to the park for many years and was very pleasantly surprised by the many improvements and upgrades that had been made. plenty of room for the kids, lots of trees and plantings, nice covered areas, new playground equipment, and clean restrooms. nice way to spend a warm spring, summer or fall afternoon.

Nice facility. Personally I'm leery about going in the water, esp in the summer time, but they do post the water quality religiously here. My kids take rowing and sailing on the lake in the summer time. It's picturesque. Great place for a picnic.

I usually go to Vancouver lake park to either bird watch or kayak. Both are great activities to do here. But I also see lots of people having picnics, hanging out on the beach and riding bikes. There is a bike path that links this park to other areas. Since there are lots of trees and grassy lawn, this is... More

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.
