Having visited this iconic jewel of an urban forest many times in the past, I selected it as a perfect way to entertain two American guests who visited the city on an overnighter up from Seattle. Both were born and raised on the east coast so the Pacific North West was a new experience for them. One of them had visited the city and the park briefly while waiting to depart on a cruise but was equally impressed as his travelling companion who had not been in Vancouver before. The park is great on any day, in any weather but we lucked out and had a beautiful sunny day. The Seawall for walkers and cyclists runs around the complete end of the peninsula and a one-way drive also circumnavigates the park. If you choose to walk in the park, be aware of cyclists. Both types, the casual tourist rental bike person and the uppity local "cycling enthusiasts", the later being the most annoying as they assume every path and road was put there just for them. If you drive a car into the park, don't hesitate to pick up a parking receipt at any of the handy Pay Stations. It's just a Toonie for and hour and its transferable to any parking spot as you make your way through the park no matter how many stops you make and be aware pay parking is strictly enforced. You don't want to spoil your day with a ticket !
You should know the park is just over 1000 acres in size so if you're going to ramble around on the trails, keep you bearings about you and know where you are. I would recommend this right at the top of your "must see" list when visiting Vancouver and area.
