Celebrate dad by spending Father’s Day in Vancouver with him doing something he loves. There’s no better way to show how much you love him than by spending time with him! Here’s some inspiration for local fun stuff.
If your dad loves the peace and quiet of fishing, take him out for some angling this Father’s Day. North Vancouver’s Rice Lake in Lynn Canyon has easy foot access and good trout fishing for kids and adults in the summer. It’s a peaceful man-made lake that was once used as a reservoir for drinking water for North Van residents. Today, it’s a wildlife refuge where you can fish to your heart’s content.
Make him hoppy with craft beer
Take dad lunch or dinner at some delicious kid-friendly pubs or bars to let him imbibe in some quality beers and nosh on some good food. Spots like Tap and Barrel, Storm Crow Tavern, and St. Augustine’s Craft Brew House all welcome adults and kids and have great menus to boot
