Awesome Kid-Friendly Activities!

Travelling with young kids is no doubt a lot of work, but when there are things to do that you & your children will both love doing together, that’s when all the work is worth it. Activities here are often what we do as a family in Vancouver and we hope you & your kids will love them too!
Taking the Seabus from Waterfront Station (downtown) to Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver is incredibly easy and inexpensive. You don’t even need a car because you can do everything using transit. And the cost of taking the Seabus is the cost of a bus fare. Your kids will love taking “a boat” & crossing the ocean in the span of 12 minutes. You will also love taking the Seabus, where you can sit & enjoy the incredible views of the North Shore mountains & Pacific Ocean. // When you arrive at Lonsdale Quay, make sure to visit the market and have lunch at the food court where you will have the option to choose from various International cuisines. Also, check out “The Shipyards” where there is a spray park in the summer and an ice skating rink in the winter. There are also more restaurants and local shops to browse. // There is also an incredible contemporary art gallery called, “The Polygon,” where admission is by donation. We’ve taken our 3 kids there and they can look at art and enjoy it! // Lastly, do check out Waterfront Park. It is a little less touristy and busy than Lonsdale Quay Market. It offers an incredible seaside walk with stunning views and lots of green grass for your children to run around & be free!

Science World is an excellent place to take both younger and older kids as it has many interesting exhibits & permanent galleries that are fun and engaging for the whole family. It’s a regular for us especially on a rainy day as we stay nice & dry indoors. // Make sure to check out the “Wonder Gallery” which is perfect for children 5 and under. The outdoor “Ken Spencer Science Park” is also a must especially in the summertime when you can take advantage of a beautiful day exploring the garden space, chickens, and the natural play space area at the back. The Omnimax theatre is currently closed due to Covid-19, but when open again, it is a perfect spot for older children & adults alike to enjoy watching the latest feature documentary. // Lastly, while you are in the area, make sure to check out “Creekside Park,” which is right beside Science World and is one of Vancouver’s “million-dollar parks” as it cost $900,000 to build! Slide down that million-dollar long tube slide with your kiddo and take advantage! (Just a fun fact for you.)
