Now here you can run, hike or just walk. I would go with someone, not alone. Its fresh, good paths and far away into the land although its not far from UBC and you will need a car to get there unless you bike there. A great long bike ride.

This very large and diver Regional Park between various parts of the west side of Vancouver and UBC is incredible. A huge, much more quiet and chill version of Stanley Park, minus all the ocean view. A real wildlife area with an Ecological Reserve inside. Walking, running, horse riding, biking, bird watching; it has it all. Be careful with sundown... More

I went for a walk through pacific spirit park. The trails are linked together so that one can take a walk or hike around the park, without hitting a road, or cars, for as much as 10km. There are 32 different interconnecting trails, and in many of the trail junctions there is a color map showing where one is as... More

We were fortunate enough to stay a few minutes away from this beautiful forest park right next to the Univeristy of British Columbia, it was a glorious place to go for long bike rides, so many great trails across the park, through shady forest. Beautifully maintained trails, for both hiking and biking.

What a wonderful place to get away from it all. Go by bicycle or walk though this piece of Forrest with well laid trails well signposted throughout. It's part of the city but once in it you forget all that.

Miles upon miles of shady forest walks. With Reck beach, easily the best beach in Vancouver (Though it is clothing optional!). With real waves

Two thumbs up, at least for the southern part of this park. If you want a walk in the woods without the hassle of trying to find a parking spot, this is the place. There is lots of parking on 16th Avenue, for example. All trails are well marked and plenty of maps tell one where one is and how... More

This is a nice peaceful park. There are lots of wildlife birds around and you can hear the many different songs and squeaks. Quite charming.

We wanted an easy, walk after a few days of walking and riding. This was our answer. It's close enough that you can get to it with out a car. It is far enough a way from the big city bustle that you forget you are in a huge metropolitan area. The trees are huge, they provided enough shade to... More

It is not easy to find a park in the city that allow you to walk your dogs off-leash. Well, this one does! We live in Kamloops, BC and we walk our dogs everyday in nature parks so bringing our pets to Vancouver becomes very nice when we can walk them in the park like this. This is such a... More

Staying in West Point Grey

Neighborhood Profile
West Point Grey
West Point Grey is one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods, especially known for its easygoing and admired beachfronts. Locals crowd the Spanish Banks and Jericho Beach, especially in the summer, where a sprawling view of the English Bay awaits. The central village is an oasis of sovereign shops, many of them in local operation for years. The neighbourhood has a more personal feeling to it, and can be a wonderful and much-needed break from the bustle of big-city life, being a little haven of peace and quiet with an almost village temperament in the heart of Vancouver.
