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.

Now here you can run, hike or just walk. I would go with someone, not alone. Its fresh, good paths and far away into the land although its not far from UBC and you will need a car to get there unless you bike there. A great long bike ride.

This very large and diver Regional Park between various parts of the west side of Vancouver and UBC is incredible. A huge, much more quiet and chill version of Stanley Park, minus all the ocean view. A real wildlife area with an Ecological Reserve inside. Walking, running, horse riding, biking, bird watching; it has it all. Be careful with sundown... More

I went for a walk through pacific spirit park. The trails are linked together so that one can take a walk or hike around the park, without hitting a road, or cars, for as much as 10km. There are 32 different interconnecting trails, and in many of the trail junctions there is a color map showing where one is as... More

We were fortunate enough to stay a few minutes away from this beautiful forest park right next to the Univeristy of British Columbia, it was a glorious place to go for long bike rides, so many great trails across the park, through shady forest. Beautifully maintained trails, for both hiking and biking.

Staying in West Point Grey

Neighbourhood 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.
