New Brighton Park – Local Vancouver Walks

New Brighton Park – Local Vancouver Walks

New Brighton Park is a lovely green space between Vancouver Harbour and the Ironworks Bridge. It’s great if you’d like a bit of sea air and unobstructed views of the North Shore Mountains.

For me, that makes this walk more pleasant as you can see…
