Regional Parks

Vancouver is a blessed place because of how the nature seamlessly blends with the urban. There is a plethora of opportunities to explore and get out in any season and weather, even if you have just a half day. I never tire of discovering new trails and parks and peaks. This year, as part of this discovery process, I decided to visit every single regional park in the Greater Vancouver and Fraser Valley area. There is about 38 of them (29 in Metro Vancouver, 8-9 in Fraser Valley, depending on which ones you count :-)), each offering a different landscape, a different flavour, a slice of what the Vancouver area has to offer to its city dwellers.

Have you visited any of these parks? Which one do you recommend I should visit next?
