Grouse Mountain North Vancouver 6.4 km away
#4 of 28 Nature & Parks in North Vancouver
There is a fantastic nature film narrated by Meryl Streep, a logger show, a guided nature walk, and a live raptor show - between the two times I saw it I 7 different large birds (owls, eagles, hawks etc).
People rave about Stanley Park, but I think Grouse Mountain offers the best local and touristy attractions and activities -- hiking, zip lining, skiing, cable lifts, bear showings, wind turbine views, etc.

English Bay Beach Vancouver 5.0 km away
#15 of 60 Nature & Parks in Vancouver
Located right in the heart of the West End and at the end (or possibly start if walking) of Stanley Park, the sandy beach offers plenty of restaurants nearby but with only the Cactus Club right on the beach.
Park benches line the beach for visitors simply wishing to take in the serene views of the ocean, mountains and a view of the peninsula which is the University of BC grounds.

#7 of 28 Nature & Parks in North Vancouver
There are some stunning views of the mountains and lake just seconds from the car park, and lovely walks through the woods down to the fish hatchery too (also worth a look in, if you're in the area!
Unlike the suspension bridge and Grouse Mountain which can get pricey just to visit, the Cleveland Dam has free parking right near the paths which lead to the park.

Surrounded by huge trees and lots of woodland type areas, Pacific Spirit Park is an oasis in the middle of the city where people can walk, run, bike, horse ride and walk their dogs in a cool place on a hot day.
Trails through this fragrant, peaceful, forested park will calm your mind and refresh your spirit...a perfect location for "forest bathing", a Japanese term for being present in nature to calm your mind and body.

Hiking your trails that day was a highlight of our trip to BC and the trails systems at this park and a visit for others, comes highly recommended!
If you're looking for great views of the city of Vancouver and Burrard Inlet, then head to Cypress Provincial Park, just a short drive from the Lions Gate Bridge.

Behind the Bay, there is the park which is beautiful and it is the most beautiful park I have been to because of the great mountains and water in front of it.

Beautifully laid out gardens, most plants and trees clearly labelled (wow, that's a change!), well maintained...... a real city treasure and a tribute to municipal parks everywhere.
The city, to its credit, does offer a few notable spaces for a temporary reprieve from the hurly burly of city life: Stanley Park, Queen Elizabeth Park, and Pacific Regional Park; however, none, I think, rival the...
