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.
The beach is ideal for bathers and families who want to play alike - and just a stone's throw from the greenery of Stanley park behind - and all free.
Grouse Mountain North Vancouver 6.4 km away
#6 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.

#4 of 61 Nature & Parks in Vancouver
The Van Dusen Botanical Gardens are the perfect place to escape into a beautiful, nature-filled outdoor paradise and go for a relaxing stroll through the gorgeous variety of plants and lush greenery.
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...
