One of the best ways to make the most of the last few weeks of summer is to plan a picnic in the park with friends on a warm, sunny day. We put together a list of primo picnic spots in Vancouver so you can scope out your perfect spot and sample your delicious spread al fresco.
Located right on the Seawall, this expansive and less crowded beach is perfect for a waterfront picnic with family and friends. It’s a designated quiet beach, so no amplified sound is allowed. There are volleyball courts, picnic tables, a concession and a swimming raft.

Right by the Second Narrows Bridge and the PNE, this big, lesser-known park is kind of a hidden gem. There’s lots of grass, picnic tables, playground, outdoor pool, and a small strip of rocky beach.

Just a short drive from downtown, this unique West Van park is one of the best spots for a picnic in a forested and oceanside picnic. Watch scuba divers suit up and dive in as you enjoy the rocky oceanfront beauty. There’s swimming, hiking, washrooms, and more.

Panorama Park overlooks Deep Cove and has a beach, sitting areas, a play area for kids and plenty of inviting grass to throw a blanket on. You can watch the kayakers while you munch on your meal. Oh, and make sure you pick up fresh donuts at Honey’s before setting up your picnic!
