This is a nice little park close to the Lion's Gate Bridge. It has a dog off-leash area which can get very crowded. There is a small pond that has interesting ducks in winter, and there are quite a few rarities that have been spotted,

Stumbled across this park while staying at the RV park nearby. Beautiful views of Stanley park, lions gate bridge and the ocean. Nice wide paved trails and lots of benches to sit and enjoy the view.

This is not very busy and there is a dog friendly area. It goes from behind Park Royal at the mouth of Capilano River all the way to Dundarave where you can find crab fishers.
