What travellers are saying
- Was enjoyable, I do wish the experience was longer. We watch Aerial America quite often on the Smithsonian channel, gives us the opportunity to understand and see sights in various parts of the US. This experience was much more enjoyable.Written November 29, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Very nice, roomy casino, with two levels of slots are far as the eye can see and whatever table games you like. I found the drinks at the bar to be a bit overpriced, but you come here for the experience I suppose.Written March 5, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Celebrated a 60th bday party. The atmosphere and races were wonderful. No one harassing patrons enjoying eats and drinks by family and friends. Plan to attend regularly. cheers.Written June 24, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This is a nice little park that backs up to some high rise buildings and looks out on the water. Maybe not worth a special trip but if you are in the area.Written January 24, 2019
- This was a great outdoor pool! The water was heated and it was a decent size. There were lanes sectioned off for swimming and a divider used to separate the shallow/more kid friendly depth from the deeper section of the pool.
Entry to the pool is very reasonably priced for the city. There are lockers available but no changing area.Written June 14, 2022
- This is an excellent 50m facility which my two competitive swimmers used to keep up with their training during our holiday in Vancouver. Good lane availability while we were there, good dive facilities, clean change rooms.Written October 2, 2019
- This arena is not too big that although I sat at the last row of the arena, I could see figure skaters very clearly. (It was a bit too far for good photos though for exhibitions in the dark). The arena was nice and clean.It is easy to access by bus although it is a bit out of the way if you don't have any other errands to do in the area.Written December 11, 2018
- This is Vancouver's largest and newest recreation facility so it's really surprising the change rooms are so bad - the women's anyway. The push-button showers only last nine seconds and they go from barely warm to scalding hot, which is a definite hazard to young children. There is no way to control the temperature. The floors in the change room are always covered in hairs and there is nowhere to apply make-up or do your hair in the event you need to go straight back to work or to an appointment. Everything else at Hillcrest is great, including the staff. Why they cheaped out on the showers and change rooms is beyond me. The showers in particular need to be improved, for safety if nothing else.Written March 9, 2020
- Impressive facility available to the public. My kids had trained at the Vancouver Aquatic Centre the day before but this pool was far superior. It was hard to get them to leave...Written October 3, 2019
- Opened in 1995, Andy Livingstone Park – named after the Vancouver Parks Commissioner of the same name – is located in Chinatown along Carrall and Keefer Streets. It is approximately 4.21 hectares in size and features a number of amenities: A children’s playground, trails (loosely speaking), artificial creek, dog park area, washroom facilities, and a massive artificial playing field. Of this latter feature, the City of Vancouver says it is the park’s “most prominent feature [. . .] suitable for soccer, field hockey and softball.” Indeed, this all sounds very nice, and it might’ve been 25 years ago, but the human geography has changed significantly in that time: With the ever-increasing cost of living, and other social woes in this city, the Downtown Eastside – or at least its vulnerable population – has made its way to this park and adjacent areas. Nearly all of the previous TripAdvisor reports indicate a park that feels unsafe and highlights, in microcosm, the plight of Vancouver. My experience in this park mirrors the previous reviews.
I’ve walked by Andy Livingstone Park numerous times but have avoided patronizing it because, each time I’ve done so, the number of hooligans in and around the park deterred me. However, after having a subpar breakfast at Dalina, I decided to take the plunge and finally explore this park on an unusually sunny November day. It was fairly early – just after 10AM – and I could hear (and see) the kids from Crosstown Elementary enjoying the playground area; thus, I felt the chances of me encountering trouble were fairly slim. Now, while that held true, the overall park experience was still unpleasant.
First, the “formal” seating area was still largely populated by vagabonds and/or drug users; in fact, I know at least one of them was a drug user because he kept shouting “WHAT DO YOU EXPECT? I PUT SULPHURIC ACID IN MY BODY!” at nobody in particular. Nice. Second, I avoided the observation spot because there was a group of seedy characters standing around up there, so I felt it best to keep my distance. Finally, the park itself just didn’t look very nice. I didn’t come across any needles, but there was a good bit of garbage strewn about. I’m sure the lack of foliage, due to the time of year, didn’t help, either!
Anyway, I do think Andy Livingstone Park is an apt microcosm of Vancouver: Much like the city, there are two worlds here: On the one hand, you have the playing field, tennis court and dog walking area, which could represent more affluent parts of the city; on the other hand, you have the actual leisure area of the park – with its fake creek, walkways and seating area – which could represent the downtown eastside. The juxtaposition is magnified exactly because these “two worlds” are side-by-side. It’s the same when you’re in the heart of downtown: At certain points it’s almost like crossing an invisible line: Good city, bad city.
Okay, enough social commentary. As my experience attests, this park is far from pleasant and should NOT be on anyone’s itinerary . . . there are far better and safer urban parks in Vancouver.Written November 30, 2021
- this gym is a fun resource to host a party for young people over 6 yrs old. the instructors are good with everyone and ensure each climber can demonstrate the rules of safety and climbing. a board room is available for group up to 12 children to sit and enjoy snacks or quick meal,Written June 16, 2017
- Second visit to this location. Years go came for a Celebration of Life held up stairs in the trophy rooms. The most recent visit was to curl in the annual Bonspiel. Ice was quite good, rocks a little inconsistent...one would curl the second not so much! Between games spent time upstairs in the bar area...a few screens to watch the hockey and football...as well as enjoy a beer or two. Treated to an excellent steak dinner on Saturday. A good weekend; staff is friendly and worked very hard to make for an enjoyable experience.Written December 2, 2013
- We walked through here on our way from Mount Pleasant to Queen Elizabeth Park. It's a nice grassy area with lots of room to play sports. It was a little bit boggy when we were there due to the rain.Written December 27, 2019
- I do lots and lots of escape rooms personally, but did the Majestic Theatre room with a large group from work with mixed escape room experience. Everyone had a lot of fun - there wasn't a single combo lock in sight! My only critique is that it was kind of hard to find the place, even knowing it was on the second floor of the mall.Written October 25, 2022
- It was a super fun way to walk around and see Vancouver. If you like walking and solving puzzle I would recommend.Written September 29, 2022
