I’ve lived in Vancouver for a very long time, and it never ceases to amaze me how beautiful this city can be in the Fall. We are so blessed to have this place where we call home, because we never have to venture far to enjoy the beauty of nature. If you have friends who are visiting for the first time, or just want to enjoy a lovely walk and maybe take a few photos, here is a list of places you can visit without even leaving the city.
Queen Elizabeth Park
Located in central Vancouver, this 130-acre park has gorgeous gardens featuring both deciduous and evergreen trees. When the colors start changing, the juxtaposition of the evergreens, gardens and red/orange hues of the trees that are morphing into winter hibernation is simply breathtaking. Check out the outdoor arboretum for a diverse selection of trees to enjoy
Van Dusen Botanical Gardens
Take the Laburnum Walk through Van Dusen Botanical Gardens, which features an eclectic mix of plant life that turns to crisp yellow throughout the fall. Also take a look at the ponds in the center of the park for a nice colour pairing of lily pads on the water and the surrounding plant life.
Memorial West Park in Dunbar
Located in western Vancouver, this small park is a lesser visited green spaces in the city and also serves as a war memorial. It is quiet, far removed from the business of downtown and full of serene places overlooking coulourful gardens and trees.
If the question is about natural wonders, Stanley Park is always the answer. So yes, the trees and vegetation turn those awesome fall colours; and yes, Stanley Park is an incredibly beautiful place to view them, whether from the seawall or during a stroll through the interior of the massive green space.Source: http://www.tourismvancouver.com
