Three Awesome Neighbourhoods in Vancouver For People Who Love The Outdoors

Are you someone who loves spending more time outside, rather than inside?  Love spending your weekends hitting local trails, biking around or hanging out in parks?  We've selected three Vancouver neighborhoods that allow easy access to trails, parks and the outdoors, but are still in perfect distance to amenities and the Vancouver lifestyle we all love.  

 

1. False Creek

False Creek is surrounded by newly built parks, bike paths and two community centres that provide excellent activities to residents and visitors alike.  

Activities of note:  Paddling in False creek in a kayak, riding your bike down the Seaside Greenway dedicated bike path that extends all the way to UBC, taking you along ocean views and park settings.  Food truck festival in Charleson Park from June to September.  Click here for the Vancouver bike path.  http://vancouver.ca/files/cov/map-cycling-vancouver.pdf  Fun bonus:  Lots of the newer condo developments have dedicated bike lock up and storage.  

 

2. Dunbar

Dunbar's rolling hills, forested neighbourhoods and close proximity to Pacific Spirit Park make it a great neighbourhood for cycling, beach time, hiking and enjoying nature paths.  There are a few new developments popping up around Dunbar to watch for.  

 

3.  East Vancouver

East Van has a TON of activities for the outdoor enthusiast to love.  From parks to trails, to bike paths to awesome festivals, East Van offers a low key, nothing but fun approach to its outdoor style.  Grab the family and head out for a picnic and the iconic farmer's market in Trout Lake Park, take a dip in the outdoor pool in New Brighton Park, check out the park grounds at the PNE fairgrounds.  Last but not least...enjoy the awesome sandy beach at Crab Park, a well kept secret!
