When in Whistler and you have a car and bikes - this is a perfect spot. There is parking and you can ride the valley trail - a separated paved bike route - safe for all. After a nice long bike ride you get to rest and enjoy Rainbow lake. Highly recommend it.

Lots of space for your picnic blanket, umbrella and lounge furniture. Clean beach and lake to swim in, water is pretty warm by mid-summer. Barking Bay dog park is next to it and is a great place to spend the day with your dog/s.

Bring your own picnic lunch, and refreshments, choose one of ? 20 clean, varnished picnic tables, join the families and kayakers, paddleboarders, bikers, frisbee throwers, and more. Easy social distancing, very comfortable. We found a table by the water, and soaked in the sunshine and the awesome views of Whistler and Blackcomb. Even saw two avalanches coming down from Whistler peak - a first for me.

Discovered this park by accident while following GPS to Alta Lake and Alpha Lake. The rogue GPS once again took us on a detour past fine estates and over to the north shore. If you have a fine day, and a car, or bikes, this is a wonderful stop. Full of color and history as well as lovely beaches, calm water and low population.
Having popped into the Whistler museum earlier that day we knew this was the original park at the village, the one established back in 1914 when access was much more of a challenge.

We hired bikes in Whistler village and completed a tour of the area. The cycle routs are excelent and we ended up passing through Rainbow park. The park is a lovely well maintained area. It was warm on the day we visited and the park was busy, however, still well worth a visit.

So beautiful and relaxing. A great place for a picnic or to look for wildlife. It is frequented by locals walking their dogs and just sunning themselves.

I just spent 10 days in whistler, and one of my days I walked from Nita lake, along the trail to rainbow park and then meadow park, and up to Nesters for lunch, to the village for a stroll and then home along the trail to Creekside .. all in winter gear and snow !

Take a bike ride here! The views are beautiful and the paths to the park are smooth. There is a nice quiet spot with a deck and bench before you get to the actual park which was our favorite spot in whistler. Just a little quiet time with the wife overlooking the lake and mountains in the background.

A nice flat trail, well signed and with lots to see. Vegetation, Lakes, Picnic areas, Bears? and a golf course with a small cafe at the ninth hole that is open to people walking the trail.
We also saw an incredibly long goods train whose whistle echoed around the valley.
