Dundarave Park

Dundarave Park is one of the most visited parks in West Vancouver, and with good reason: it has more than 50 metres of wide sandy beach and nearly a hectare of waterfront access. It’s also where the Centennial Seawalk begins.

Dundarave Park is a perfect spot for you and your family to pass an enjoyable day in the great outdoors.

In 2017, a floating swimming dock was installed in Dundarave as a pilot project. Based on the positive feedback received by the community, area residents and beach visitors, the dock is returning to Dundarave as a regular summer feature for all to enjoy.
