Please respect the outdoors by practicing Leave No Trace. Learn more about how to apply the principles of Leave No Trace on your next outdoor adventure here.

Just to the northeast of Kitsilano Beach, and a bit closer to Downtown Vancouver sits Hadden Park. It's small and primarily used by those bringing their pooches to the off-leash dog area, but it's got a great view of the city and English Bay, and it is definitely worth a stop. Bike and pedestrian paths connect it to Kits and to Vanier Park, but it's got a vibe all its own. The small bay is less of an open expanse of sand, and more of a rocky shoreline. There are tide pools to explore and enough sand for kids and dogs to run around. A small peninsula at the northern tip of the park boasts 270-degree views. Its many amenities, as well as proximity to the city make this a popular park for people of all ages.

Like most City of Vancouver parks, Hadden Park is open from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
