Spring in Vancouver is the season of rejuvenation. Gardens bloom, whales migrate and the entire city comes alive. In March, April and May, Vancouver’s special mix of cosmopolitan living and outdoor adventure is at its best. From dining and shopping to kayaking, golfing and exploring nature, Vancouver has the ultimate remedy for spring fever.
Nowhere is spring more evident—or more beautifully realized, than at Vancouver’s gorgeous public gardens. The roses at the Stanley Park rose garden are at peak bloom at the end of March through the beginning of April. The first two weeks of May are the best times. Spend a day touring gardens by combining trips to Stanley Park with visits to the lush VanDusen Botanical Garden, the enchanting spaces at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden and the free quarry gardens at Queen Elizabeth Park. Whale-watching season starts in March, and the spring months are among the best to see these magnificent creatures in action. Experience the thrill of watching migrating orcas and gray whales up- close-and-personal.
Situated in the heart of Vancouver, the False Creek inlet is the perfect spot for springtime kayaking. Take a kayak tour and see seals, otters, eagles, and fish while enjoying exercise, fresh sea air and amazing views of downtown Vancouver. If spring is the time to experience nature hands-on, then Vancouver is the place to do it.
