Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
Within the boundaries of North Vancouver alone, there are nearly 50 city parks, close to 100 district parks and many nearby provincial parks.
And that's not even counting the nearby parks in West Vancouver, also part of Vancouver’s North Shore.
In mountainous provincial parks such as Cypress and Mount Seymour, explore trails and admire magnificent old-growth forest. Lynn Canyon Park is known for its long suspension bridge and hiking routes, and Capilano River Regional Park features a fish hatchery along with trails.
Kids will enjoy the City Skate Park, Mahon Spray Park and Maplewood Farm. For a spot next to the water, visit Cates Park in Deep Cove or Waterfront Park right next to bustling Lonsdale Quay.
In nearby West Vancouver, park highlights include Lighthouse Park and Ambleside Park.

6501 Deer Lake Ave
Burnaby, British Columbia
Where history comes to life. Stroll down the streets of our 1920s village exploring the heritage & replica buildings. Period costumed townsfolk give demonstrations in the homes, businesses & shops: watch the blacksmith at forge, listen to the rhythm of the platen press, mind the teacher in the schoolhouse, catch an old movie in the theatre & hear stories about the Love family and their Farmhouse. Be sure to take in the elegance of the Interurban #1223; a mode of transportation ahead of its time. A ride on the 1912 CW Parker Carousel is sure to please both the young and the young at heart. The village grounds include gardens, and grassy meadow and fish-bearing brook.
