Bask in the Views

One of Vancouver's ace picnic spots, Vanier Park delivers stunning views on the shores of English Bay. That's true whatever the weather: On a sunshiny day, you can admire the steep North Shore Mountains in their full splendor, but a drizzly city skyline with a misty backdrop is just as beautiful in its own way. (This is Vancouver, after all, so you've got to learn to appreciate the magic of overcast and leaky skies.)

Besides the vistas and the idyllic landscaping, Vanier Park also tempts with several standout cultural institutions--the Museum of Vancouver and the H.R. MacMillian Space Centre among them--and hosts some of Vancouver's best-known summer celebrations, including the world-class Shakespeare festival "Bard on the Beach."
