Vanna Park is home to the H.R. Astronomical Museum, the Vancouver Museum (Move) and the nearby Maritime Museum. From the steps of the Maritime Museum, you can dock for the False River Ferry. False Creek ferry can take you to Granville Island, Aquatic Center, Stamp Landing, National Square, Yalton, and Telus Science World. Vanna Park is also a children's festival, in April or May. It's also a great place for picnics in spring or summer. In the toolbox in July/August, you can watch the celebration of the lighting fireworks show in the Bay of England. Just bring a beach blanket, lawn chair, food and drinks and have a picnic at 10:15 p.m. Go there early to claim your spots! It may get cold there, so bring a thin coat or sweater. Enjoy it.
Not far west of Kislano Beach is Vannel Park, which is also a good place to watch sunset. The famous "Bard on the Beach--Shakespeare's Drama Festival" is held here every year. There are also Vancouver Museum, Vancouver Marine Museum and Macmillan Astronomical Museum, which are good places for family activities. Parents can take their children to these museums to gain insights, spend a meaningful day, sit on the lawn picnic in the afterglow of the sunset, and let the dazzling sunset draw a perfect end to this journey.
Fannier Park is directly facing the English Bay. The environment is quiet and the seascape is charming. Many people jog along the coastal trails, ride bicycles, walk dogs and so on, forming a peaceful picture. Only during some special events will the park still be crowded with people.
Fannier Park has a lot of quiet beaches. On sunny days, the beach is filled with laughing crowds. There are restaurants and drinks shops beside public washrooms and dressing rooms, swimming days are suitable in summer, and lifeguards stationed by the government are on duty free of charge. There is also a children's playground with more advanced facilities.
