Well folks we hate to say it but summer is slowly coming to an end. And even though we’ll miss it, we’re excited to see BC transform into a fall wonderland. So if you’re all about seeing those beautiful fall colours be sure to keep on reading. Here are 10 places to see fall colours in BC.
First off, we’ll start close to home. Everyone’s favourite inner-city park has some seriously wonderful fall colours to offer us. And it’s also just a great place to get out of the house and explore. So be sure to head over to Stanley Park in the coming weeks.
Where: Stanley Park
Here’s another spot that will give you nice fall vibes while also remaining in the city. Van Dusen is fun to visit year-round but to their unique and diverse plant species, there’s always something new to see no matter what time of year you go in.
Where: 5151 Oak Street
If you happen to go to UBC you’re probably pretty familiar with this park. But that being said, it’s absolutely worth visiting even if you don’t get out to the west side much. After all, there are tons of trails to explore and colours to see.
Where: Pacific Spirit Park
And how could we forget the beautiful lookout at the top of Queen Elizabeth Park? If you’re heading to Bloedel Conservatory or just up to the park be sure to look out at the city. Because chances are you’re going to catch a glimpse or two of the city changing colours.

And if you feel like leaving the mainland you can head over to Vancouver Island to see all that Tofino has to offer during the autumn. And you might just be able to catch a few waves too, depending on what you’re into.

On the topic of the Island, you can also head to the well-loved Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park. And this is an especially great spot if you want to bring a kayak or canoe to enjoy the BC fall colours from the water. You have options!

Is there any season this mountain doesn’t do well? We love Grouse year-round and fall is an excellent time to take advantage of some hiking and views with a sprinkle of fall colours. So get out there and finally do the grind this year.

If you’re going to head East you should consider heading to Nelson. Because while this town is relatively small it’s still a great place to take advantage of fall hiking and views. Plus the drive out there will be equally as spectacular as when you arrive.

You can check out the Cascades lookout at Manning Park for some seriously spectacular fall views. And we’ll bet you’ll love the drive to this iconic park as well. So there’s nothing to lose by visiting Manning Park.
