Vancouver is renowned for its gorgeous greenspaces. From the wild, untamed beauty of Pacific Spirit and Stanley Park to seaside tranquil beaches and quaint neighbourhood parks, Vancouver is teeming with scenic spots. With close to 300 parks that comprise 11% of the city’s footprint, there’s a lot to do and explore in Vancouver’s natural playground. Stunning coastal mountains, old-growth rainforests, sandy coastlines, open grassy spaces and manicured gardens soothe and inspire. Stanley Park, the city’s 1,000-acre gem, is one of the top urban parks in the world with its ancient cedars and 10 km seawall. With so many spectacular parks, you can refresh and energize right in your own backyard.
