The 200 destination parks, sea walks, beaches, botanical gardens, small neighborhood parks and a nice variety of golf courses also augment the natural beauty of this city. The parks are excellent locations for all kinds of sports and family activities and kids and adults alike enjoy the beauty of the natural surroundings and the crisp fresh air.

Spending some relaxing time on the English Bay or on any other of Vancouverís well-preserved beaches is fun and rewarding, while the locals are always cheerful and helpful.

If you wish to hide away from the sun for a few hours, Stanley Park is certainly the number one destination. This amazing park, with majestic trees and dozens of activities and places where you can have fun, is locate near the city core, creating a oasis of peace and relaxation. Donít miss the Brockton Visitor Centre, located in the West Coast rainforest in Stanley Park and enjoy the wildlife that populates the area.
