The park opened late last year, and we've been enjoying quick stops and picnics here on a weekly basis ever since. It's just past the security fence for the south runway of YVR, so needless to say, the views are great. The miniature runways are adorable, and our toddler loves climbing on the world globe. The YVR informational signs are quite informative and well-done, and the plane-spotting area (the mound directly under the approach to the south runway) has great signs to help identify the most common planes at YVR.
Our one disappointment with the park isn't worthy of a reduction in stars, but still worth pointing out: the big planes don't usually fly directly over the park on sunny days. Generally speaking, if the weather is nice, planes take off away from the park (and the big planes almost always land on the north runway, irrespective of weather). If you're adamantly trying to see the big planes land, there's a dirt parking lot off of the north runway that serves that purpose. That being said, we love visiting Larry Berg Park, holding out hope that the take-off pattern will be towards the park or that we'll inadvertently arrive just before a few jets use the south runway for landings. One thing is for sure: we know that we'll see lots of fun airplane activity each time we arrive.
