Vancouver Travel Guide

Vancouver Kids Attractions

Vancouver is a paradise for kids on holiday. During the summer months, visit Stanley Park, where plenty of kids activities abound, such as the Spray Park near Lumberman''s Arch and the Children''s Farm, a fantastic petting zoo for the younger tots. Families can even enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride through the park and your kids will love it here, so much so that you may find yourself coming back on more than one occasion.

Animal lovers will have a great time exploring the Vancouver Aquarium and the Greater Vancouver Zoo, while older kids should visit Granville Island''s Water Park and Adventure Playground for a day of water fun.

On rainy or cold days when outdoor activities with kids are not an option, head to the Science World at Telus World of Science or the Space Centre for a fascinating day out, or for something really fun, visit the Richmond Go-Kart track for a day of racing. There are also plenty of indoor playgrounds available such as the Kerrisdale Play Palace in the Kerrisdale Cyclone Taylor Arena, or Kid Zone at the Park Royal Mall South Shopping Center.
