Vancouver is currently exploding with the spectacular colours of autumn, providing the perfect backdrop for a family photoshoot. If you can catch a break in the weather, head out to these parks around the city to make a few foliage-themed memories.
For the best family selfie spot, try the beach at the south end of Trout Lake. The park’s foliage is ablaze with bright colours right now. If the weather isn’t cooperating, not to worry. The park retains its beauty well into November, especially on clear, frosty mornings.
