Want to get out and about this autumn but don’t know where to start? Well, we’re here to suggest a few great spots to go on a fall walk in Vancouver. Pop-out for an hour or two and enjoy this city’s natural beauty. Trust us, you’ll be happy that you did.
Here are 5 great places for a fall walk in Vancouver.
We’re starting things off with our favourite place for a fall stroll. Queen Elizabeth Park is the perfect inner-city oasis and has a ton of fun plants and trees to check out. Just make sure you sneak a peek of the city skyline in before you head back home!
Jericho is a highly underrated area of Vancouver to hang out in. We like to start at Jericho then walk out and back to Spanish Banks, but you can do it either way! What’s guaranteed is a great beachside stroll, just make sure you bring a windbreaker!
Of course, Stanley Park is one of the most popular parks in Canada for a reason. It’s proximity to the downtown core, paired with some fantastic trails and ocean views, makes it an easy pick for anyone looking to get the full Vancouver experience in one afternoon.
These last two picks technically aren’t in Vancouver, but they’re close enough to get the nod. This authentic Japanese garden at UBC saw one of the most straightforward compliments of all time when Emperor Akihito simply said “I am in Japan” while walking through it.
North Van has quickly become a great place to spend a day, and that will continue into the fall. We can’t help but applaud the plan to put everything you need near the ocean and the quay itself. From art galleries to breweries and local parks, this is a great spot to bring out your inner cultural explorer.
And that’s our list of 5 great places for a fall walk in Vancouver! We hope to see you out and about, enjoying all that fresh air coming our way over the next few weeks.
