Spring has sprung, and that means it’s time to head outdoors. Pack a picnic and head to these Vancouver parks for some R and R with baby.

CRAB Park at Portside

This little known gem has plenty of lawn to sprawl and crawl. Take in the beautiful waterfront views of North and West Vancouver as you stroll along the park’s gravel pathways. If your baby is over the putting-everything-in-the-mouth stage, take a seat on the sandy beach and watch the cruise ships roll in. Clean washrooms and a small playground nearby.

101 E Waterfront Rd, Vancouver

Panorama Park

Stop by Honey’s Doughnuts & Goodies for a few tasty treats before heading to this peaceful park in Deep Cove. Enjoy incredible waterfront views on a bench under the trees and watch the sailboats float by. Go during the week to beat the crowds and snag a parking spot.

George Wainborn Park

This park is hopping on sunny days. Which is not so bad if you’re looking to finally interact with some adults. It’s an easy spot to get to and plenty of green space for your baby to practise crawling. There’s also a set of swings if you’re toting older tots around. If it’s too busy, try David Lam Park right next door off Pacific and Homer Street.
