Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
Situated in the southwest corner of BC's mainland, the region's parks reflect that location: sheltered coastal waters, old-growth rainforests, Coast and Cascade mountain ranges and proximity to population centres.
This diversity delivers Stanley Park, the pride of Vancouver in a metro area that is home to hundreds of green spaces. It gives us wilderness parks where one can wander the backcountry for a day or a week. And it includes the marine parks that preserve the quiet bays and rocky shorelines that provide habitat for wildlife.
The region is home to the province's largest population centers so the parks are located within driving distance of where people live and work and go to school. Several offer camping facilities and other accommodations, as well as picnic areas. The region boasts literally hundreds of parks.
