This is another waterfront park. Nice view of the harbor it is home to several attractions plus the Bard theater for Shakespeare. Popular with locals and tourists alike. Walk across the Burrard bridge or take a water taxi.

With Stanley Park close by, it is difficult to compete. This park holds its own, nice open areas, very scenic and easy to get to. Worth the visit

Yes, absolutely. Only the parking costs money. If you look around, you can probably find some free parking on the street
