Vancouver is a great city for families with kids. It has a host of indoor and outdoor parks and recreational areas, which make for ideal summer outings. During winter, parents will be able to take their children to some of the city's great museums and interactive educational exhibitions.


Child-friendly activities in Vancouver

There are many seasonal activities for families to enjoy in Vancouver, such as skating, ice hockey, sledging and skiing. In the warmer months, a popular option is to spend the day at Stanley Park. The water park and a ride on the train are great fun, as are horse-drawn carriage rides.

The Vancouver Aquarium and the Greater Vancouver Zoo are excellent places to see some exotic and unusual animals, while all things outer space can be experienced at the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre or Science World. 

There’s also great fun to be had at Granville Island's Water Park and Adventure Playground, and at the Richmond go-kart track. In the dreaded cold of winter, there are a few indoor playgrounds to visit too.

Most experienced expats will agree that, when moving abroad, the adjustment for their children is a big concern. Vancouver is a great place for expat families with children because it is one of Canada’s most diverse cities and has loads of fun events to attend. Kids will easily embrace their new home and parents will find that the city is exceedingly family friendly.
