If you are looking for an urban park with fresh air that smells of the sea and cedars, this is the spot to be. The park can be accessed from many areas between 4th and 41st on Vancouver's Point Grey. Each area has its own attraction. If you enter from 4th, you will get good steady uphill climbs. From 41st,... More

I love to run in the parks of Pacific Spirit with my friends and my dog. It is so beautiful to be amongst the trees and lush floral surroundings.

I love the many trails in the Pacific Regional Park, it's a great place to take my dogs for a walk, get lost in thought and get some exercise.

You won't believe you can experience the forest in its natural state so close to the city centre. If you're looking for a chance to experience nature and to get away from the hustle and bustle, this is for you!

The Pacific Spirit Trail is wonderful but we got lost even though we had a map. It was confusing. We saw some beautiful trees and other landscaping on the trail. The trail also runs through the University of BC, which was a huge and beautiful campus. It was packed w/ a very diverse student body! We thought that was awesome!!... More

My husband and I went for a walk at the Pacific Spirit yesterday afternoon and we were agreeably surprised. It was very quiet and it was like walking through a forest. Very peaceful, not a lot of people (contrary to the Stanley park)... Go spend a few hours in this Park and you will not regret it! Highly recommended Park!!!

For people who enjoy the outdoors and discovery this place is for you. Know when the tide goes out and explore the many tide pools loaded with life,...if you look hard enough. Wear shoes or hiking boots for stability the rocks can be slippery.

This park is just another example of the many outdoor nature options available for locals and tourists alike. It's situated on the West Side of Vancouver just between UBC and the city. It's a great alternative to Stanley park which tends to be very busy with tourists. This place is less polished but a great way to get out of... More

This Pak is a wonderful "free" thing to do in Vancouver. It doesn't have the tourist items like Stanley Park. It's located near University of British Columbia campus. It's beautiful with the huge trees. Hike and bike trails run through it, but I saw none of the crowds that you may see in other parks around town. I just loved... More

Pacific Spirit Park covers a wide area right next to the urban area of Vancouver. There are many Trails crisscrossing the park. Some allow bicycles and some are designated off-leash for dogs. The trails near Spanish Banks Beach are steeper while the trails off 16th Avenue are quite flat.

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.
