Head to a patio

With the new restrictions in place for the next few weeks, patios in Vancouver will be a hot ticket item this spring. Luckily, we’ve got a list of some great places for you to check out around the city. Just make sure you’re also following social guidelines if you decide to go.

Dive in on your own public art tour

The Vancouver Mural Fest has covered neighbourhoods around the city with gorgeous artworks. But, we recommend that you check out the latest addition to the Vancouver Biennale’s Open Air Museum. Either way, interesting public art is a great daytime option in the spring.

Visit a Japanese garden

The Nitobe Memorial Garden at UBC is one of the best hidden gems in the city. If you’re looking for a beautiful place to see Vancouver (and its cherry blossoms) in the spring, then this is a great option. Plus, you’ll be right there if you decide to take our advice and check out the treewalk.

When: Open Wednesday to Sunday
Where: Lower Mall, UBC
Cost: $5

Play Disc Golf at Queen Elizabeth Park

If you’re looking for a way to hang with your friends outdoors in a socially distanced manner then disc golf might just be for you. And what’s even better is that the course at Queen Elizabeth Park is completely free! So grab a frisbee and your friends and try it out.

When: Open throughout April
Where: 33rd Avenue and Cambie St

Seek out some beautiful cherry blossoms

We have a feeling that checking out cherry blossoms will be a top choice for us this spring, and we’re down for it. After all, cherry blossoms are beautiful, free, and a great opportunity for some fresh air. Now, the issue is picking where to go, but we’ve got you covered with the city’s best areas.
