West Vancouver Seawalk
Facing Stanley Park, West Vancouver Seawall provides extraordinary views of the park, ocean, Burrard Inlet and Lions Gate Bridge. There are many shops, restaurants and coffee shops at either end of the walk.
I enjoyed hanging around down there, there were performers in the park doing skits, tricks, comedy etc. The people were all friendly, there was a police presence that kept the area secure(Vancouver police could teach the rcmp a thing or two). I wish other cities were as pleasant to visit as West Vancouver. The scenery, shops and restaurants were fantastic. Check out Fat Burger and Olympia when you go there, you won't be disappointed.
There is usually ample parking along the way. Most of the walk, well manitained and smooth surfaced runs right beside the ocean, with railway tracks just above and you can walk along the rocky sandy shore if you like. Dogs are NOT allowed but there may be a path just above they can use. There is a huge off-leash dog park at the eastern end beside the Capilano River and they can swim in the ocean nearby.
Enjoy walking out on the piers. Playgrounds and washrooms are at both Ambleside and Dundarave ends. Very gorgeous. You can see ocean liners, sailboats, sometimes wind surfers and seals.
You'll have full view of the south west side of Stanley Park hillsides and Lion's Gate Bridge, illuminated at night. The Stanley Park seawall, a much longer walk, is located right opposite this seawall and can be accessed by crossing the Lion's gate. If you are very ambitious you can walk across the bridge. Very wide walkways on it and viewing decks. The cruise ships pass under Lion's gate in and out from the docks. From Ambleside they seem very close. Can also be seen from overhead on the bridge and from Stanley Park.
Ambleside with sandy beach and logs to lean on is great for picnics and volleyball. There's a concession and skateboard park also.
