Yes you CAN have it all. Our home has the best of the two worlds: City and Nature. West End is the best part of Vancouver. It is downtown, yet it is next to the Stanley Park, minutes to beach, outdoor swimming pool and forest, very quiet. Two blocks away from Denman Street, with a lot of restaurants, shops and grocery stores, Robson Street. and Davie Street are all close by. Based on millions of reviews submitted to TripAdvisor, Stanley Park, one of the largest urban parks in North America, is awarded ‘top park in the entire world’, beating out New York’s Central Park and the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris. You are close to bike paths, the walkways, the seawall, the grass and the flower beds and the rose gardens. And you look just beyond that and suddenly the temperature changes, the forest floor changes, you’ve got tree stumps, the totem poles, you’ve got woods and fir trees... And you’re into a forest. Stanley Park is Vancouver's #1 tourist destination, with also an Aquarium, Prospect Point with amazing Lion's Gate Bridge view, 3 restaurants, and tennis courts.
It's possible to exchange cars. But honestly you just want to walk to downtown, on the seawall, or in Stanley Park. There are bus #5, #6 and #21 in the neighbourhood and Skytrain to anywhere else. There are also AquaBus to Granville Island.
