Peaceful place with lots of birds.

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

This great park on the endowment lands of the University of British Columbia is beautiful and unspoiled, and you can't believe that it's part of one of Canada's largest, most cosmopolitan cities. And it contains one of the coolest, most fun clothing-optional beaches we have ever seen -- Wreck Beach! :-)

Eight of us spent a few hours walking the various trails through this wonderful park. It's huge in area, about the same size as downtown Vancouver. Gorgeous tress, ferns, birds, even edible berry bushes from which to eat. The trails are well marked and groomed. Highly recommend it. God Bless

Beautiful trek through a quiet city forestry park. The trail is used by cyclist, runners, walkers, and strollers of all ages. Everyone keeps to themselves but some are friendly for asking directions. Many affluent people. So don't be surprised of snooty people. It's a beautiful quiet place for a walk. It's took about 10k to get to UBC. So bring... More

I did not expect to find such a beautiful forest in the middle of Vancouver. Compared to European forests, the high canopy cover is just something different. The park is full of dirt-trails which are perfectly ridable with a hybrid bike, even when towing a trailer. I have a feeling that I will pass through this park many times!

This is a place we always go to when in Vancouver. It will fill you with a sense of awe and peace. There is not a bad time of year to visit as it is beautiful and different every time. Please respect where you are and stay on the trails so as not to disturb the natural serenity and environment... More

We went there and had an amazing time enjoying the park and the view! It was nice to have a picnic and spend time contemplating nature. The sunset is colorful and special!

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.
