What people are saying:

Perfect park along the water to relax. Plenty of benches and grass available for lounging, and a wide path is paved for biking (go rent one!), jogging, or casual strolls.

    Enjoyed the beautiful Park

    Took in a visit to Vanier Park, we were there to visit the Bard on the Beach and went on a quick walk around the water ledge. This park has so many sights and a beautiful place to watch the sunset.

    Great way to see Vancouver! The grounds were covered in snow, squirrels were running around, ponds were frozen, water was sparkling and it is a peaceful place to go! I would highly recommend doing it ...

Vanier Park was once a Royal Canadian Air Force base. The base was turned into a park and opened to the public in 1967. This is the largest park in the area. A visitor can attend any one of the many festivals held there, including Bard on the Beach and the International Children's festival.
