The Reserve is a beautiful place to walk and observe nature at its best. I live in Vancouver now but newly discovered this treasure. There is something for everyone here.

The entire reserve is very nice. There is room for a nice walk through the old army base and the British fort was very interesting. This is a part of NW history that is seldom taught.

Very historical area of Vancouver. A must for visitors to see. Beautifully restored area. You can walk this area in about an hour. Lots to see and beautiful established landscaping.

Plus, it is conveniently located close by other historic locations, such as Fort Vancouver, Pearson Air Museum, Marshall House, and Grant House. There is a small visitors center at the east end of the site, right off Evergreen Boulevard, the main street crossing through it. It has a knowledgeable staff, a small gift shop, and rest rooms. …
