Fun Activities for Everyone to Enjoy the Great Outdoors

The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

Here, outdoor activities are abundantly available all year round, so it’s really a matter of temperature preference. You’ll probably have to deal with West Coast rain every once in a while, but that’s what dressing appropriately is for. There’s indeed an endless stream of outdoor activities ranging from skiing and swimming to hiking and biking, so take your pick. If you’re looking for something a little more unhurried and leisurely, there’s also plenty of options to choose from 365 days of the year. We’ve rounded up a list of some of our favorite outdoor activities just for you, so take a look:

Hiking at Lynn Canyon Park

There’s nothing like the great outdoors, and with hiking, you’ll get to exercise your body and inspire your mind with amazing scenery. Lynn Canyon Park is just a 15-minute drive from downtown Vancouver, and that’s definitely just a stone’s throw away. Here, you can also enjoy tons of other outdoor activities such as walking the suspension bridge, visiting the Ecology Centre and so much more.

Location: 3690 Park Rd, North Vancouver, BC V7J 3K2

Opening Hours: 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. (Oct to May), 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Jun to Sep)

Visiting Riley Park Farmers Market

With more than 70+ vendors every week, you can definitely rest assured that this is something worth checking out. It’s located in the Nat Bailey Stadium parking lot, and whether you’re looking to stock up on fresh fruits, meats and vegetables or just wish to sample and enjoy the season’s offerings on the spot, this is a great place to do so. Does rainbow carrots and turkey tail mushrooms sound appealing to you?

Location: 4601 Ontario St, Vancouver, BC V5V 3H4

Opening Hours: Every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (till 28 April 2019)

Picnicking at David Lam Park

If you’re looking to just chill under the sun, you’ll best pack your own version of the ultimate picnic basket and head on over to David Lam Park. Here, you’ll get to enjoy fantastic views of Yaletown and False Creek, and if you’re dressed well for the weather and your intended activities, there’s no reason why you can’t have a whale of a time. In fact, why don’t you start planning your outdoor excursion right now?

Location: 1300 Pacific Blvd, Vancouver, BC V6Z 2Y1

Opening Hours: 10 a.m. to Dusk

Join the Vancouver Sun Run

35 years and still counting, the Vancouver Sun Run is home to Canada’s largest starting line. Just imagine the atmosphere and noise on the day itself. If that doesn’t get your adrenaline pumping, nothing else will. You’ll be running through downtown Vancouver, going through famous Stanley Park, and ending the 10k race across the Cambie Street Bridge. After the race, just head on over to BC Place Stadium for an awesome wrap party with everyone.

Location: Starts at Georgia Street

Starting Time & Date: 14 April 2019. Do check the website for more info.
