My boyfriend and I went here for a romantic view of the ocean under the moonlight. Nobody was there, so it was very quiet and private. Wow.... It's so nice there! I love the park benches with ocean views and big rocks that you can sit on. There's plenty of grassy areas to lay around on, plus picnic tables, etc.... More

I spent an afternoon walking along the path along the bay. This was a Sunday and a bit of sunshine so it broght out the locals and their dogs. It was just a nice place to be on a cool crisp afternoon.

Nice peaceful walk paved walkway by the water. Many many people walk their dogs along here. Enjoyable walk but it is crowded. Flat trail right along the water and well maintained

We did a nice bike ride along the park but discovered that we took a wrong path and were in the off leash area where bikes are not allowed. The signs were confusing if you do not know the area and the icons painted on the paths need re-painting. So look carefully! But a nice park, views of the Lions... More

Nice park to walk around in the morning. Good playgrounds and a pretty large off leash dog area as well.

I've lived in Vancouver for over 30 years and this is my favourite park. Calming view of the water, Stanley Park and Spanish Banks. You can walk from Park Royal to Dundarave. Beautiful.

We stumbled upon it by accident when we were too early for check-in at our hotel. As we drive past we were attracted to the artwork displayed on easels so we found a place to park. As we walked left towards the bridge we stopped to watch young people on skateboards and others play volley board or just resting on... More
