Of the many trails, the most popular is the seawalk that starts at the foot of 13th Street and ends at the Railway Bridge on the Capilano River. There are other trails around the duck pond, through the grassy lawns in the dog area and around the sports fields.
Always eagerly awaited by local birders and nature photographers, the Green Heron returns to the park in early April from wintering grounds as far south as Puerto Rico. It comes north each year to mate, nest and raise its young. It is rare in the Lower Mainland; the pond in Ambleside Park is the only known nesting site on the North Shore.
The off-leash dog area is approximately 3.52 hectares in size and consists of grassy areas, trails, and beach access for both dogs and their owners.
