Pacific Spirit Park

Spend an afternoon one day soon wandering the quiet woodland of Vancouver’s Pacific Spirit Park. We explored this regional park a couple of Saturdays ago and I came away from the day feeling grounded and calm, the same way I do after all nature walks in inspiring green spaces.

Pacific Spirit Park reminded me a bit of Goldstream Park on Vancouver Island (one of my favourite parks anywhere) with its big tall trees, crushed stone pathways, and lots of cool shade to balance out a hot day. What I loved most about it is that it’s an urban park located adjacent to the UBC campus. Large green spaces are such an important thing for cities to have.

I hope you’ll go. It’s just a short bus or bike ride away from the vibrant city hustle of downtown.

    It looks gorgeous! We live adjacent to a ravine designated as a nature reserve and walking the trails is one of my very favourite activities in the world. There is something so meditative about it.

    Great photos!
