Running in Vancouver

There is no finer place to pound the pavement than Vancouver's picturesque Stanley Park seawall. The flat, 10- kilometre (6.2 mile) path goes around the circumference of the park. On hot summer days, however, the cool shade of the towering Douglas Fir and cedar trees in the interior trails provides a welcome shade from the heat. Other favourite spots for running include the University of British Columbia Endowment Lands and Pacific Spirit Regional Park, the seaside bicycle route, and Central Park in nearby Burnaby.
