Came across this quite close to our hotel and it is like a time warp of how life must have been before the arrival of sky scrapers. Several wooden buildings with a green area which looks like a pleasant place to sit and relax

This is a popular park for locals to go but I wouldn’t say it’s a tourist destination. If you feel like taking a walk up Barclay, just a few blocks off Denman, you will run into some lovely character homes and this small park with gardens. I think the spring garden is the most impressive with all the rhodo’s, tulips,... More

I had read reviews about the gardens in this area so we put in on our itinerary. If you have run out of everything else to do in Vancouver than I would say maybe this is worth seeing but it should go on the bottom of the list. No one with a rake, hose or pruning shears is paying any... More

The most noteworthy aspect of this square is not so much the square itself but rather the restored old houses in the immediate vicinity.

A blast from the past in a skyscraper city. Beautiful heritage houses with cherry blossom trees lining the square.

Interesting restored old Vancouver homes to view, weddings are sometimes held here. They are actually located at Barclay and Broughton Streets.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
