Strolling on the beach, people watching, free live music at the Kitsilano Showboat (summer), swimming at the public pool....
Has a outdoor swimming pool, lots of beach space and picnic areas. 5-10 minute drive or a quick bus trip.
If you're spending time at Granville Island or West 4th and want to visit a beach, this is your best bet! Come in early spring and if you're lucky you'll catch one of the most spectacular bloomings of Cherry Blossoms outside of Japan!
It is a beach with a big and lovely park. There is a swimming pool and cafes and restaurants.
Nearby beach and park. Nice smaller community hub en route at Cypress & 1st Ave.
“Formally Higher Grounds Coffee, this place looks like the inside of a train station and is a next level gourmet coffee experience.”
“In the summer there are lots of people in their birthday suits. The rest of the year it's a beautiful place to go down (many stairs) and gaze out across the Pacific ocean.”
“Bike rentals available here. Cycle around the Vancouver seawall, Granville Island and Stanley Park”
“English-style pub featuring live music with a large selection of local craft beer. Decent menu with items like Fish and chips, burgers, pot pie and stews. Try the Roast Beef Dinner on Sunday nights. ”
