Pacific Spirit Park at UBC
Pacific Spirit Regional Park is an exceptional natural park located on Point Grey in the UBC Endowment Lands by the University of British Columbia‘s main campus.
The park has over 70 km (43 miles) of forested hiking and walking trails, including many that allow cycling, mountain biking and horseback riding. It also has over 7 km of coastline, including Wreck Beach – Vancouver’s infamous and very popular clothing optional beach.
Open daily from dawn until dusk, Pacific Spirit Regional Park is one of Vancouver’s busiest and most popular parks, with close to 1.5 million visitors per year. It’s a massive park though, so most parts are never crowded; it’s a perfect place to escape the city.
In addition to Wreck Beach, another popular (and less risqué) destination within the park is Camosun Bog. One of Vancouver’s best public golf courses is also right in the park – University Golf Club (at 5185 University Boulevard).
