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.

Stanley Park

Picture perfect opportunities are abundant in this 400-hectare utopia of towering trees. For some unique scenery, strike a pose by the park’s totem poles at Brockton Point, or the Hollow Tree on the west side of Stanley Park Drive. For a lake view, head to the wooden viewing platform on North Creek Trail in Beaver Lake.

Access Stanley Park from the main entrance at the west end of Georgia Street.

Vanier Park

This Kitsilano neighbourhood park provides a number of pose-worthy backdrops with views of False Creek, English Bay and downtown Vancouver. Take a few extra shots on the park’s arched footbridge, and for some added family fun, drop by the nearby museum.
