While beachcombing with my wife, our 5 year old and 2 year old we expected to find lots of interesting things but definitely not old used needles. It’s a nice park but be careful. Lots of trash, garbage and as I️ said we even found...More

This area has a nice beach with plenty of play area for kids, picnic areas and parking. Sundays in a day for Farmers Market. Great view of Stanley Park across the way

This is a nice walking trail through John Lawson Park which is great for kids. The walk is a good distance with several benches for resting or just sitting and watching the ships coming and going and enjoying the sunshine

My wife and I now live in West Vancouver and often go to Ambleside Park during our daily walk. We find the ocean view from there second to none. The availability for space in the sand is abundant. Even in a busy weekend we found...More

We like venturing to Ambleside Park because of the beach, seawall and views. On the East side of the park is a great leash free area for dogs. It's always fun watching them play at full tilt. If you wonder North you can walk all...More

Not much shade or shady options. Usual sand beach with pebbles mixed in. Logs to lie or sit against all over, and a nice pier too for crabbing and fishing. Close to parking and shops.

This is a nice little park close to the Lion's Gate Bridge. It has a dog off-leash area which can get very crowded. There is a small pond that has interesting ducks in winter, and there are quite a few rarities that have been spotted,

Stumbled across this park while staying at the RV park nearby. Beautiful views of Stanley park, lions gate bridge and the ocean. Nice wide paved trails and lots of benches to sit and enjoy the view.

This is not very busy and there is a dog friendly area. It goes from behind Park Royal at the mouth of Capilano River all the way to Dundarave where you can find crab fishers.
