Jogging along the West Vancouver Centennial Seawalk
Activity:I never thought I'd see the
day when my husband took up jogging. His main beef was always that
jogging was too much work, especially going up the hills. What made him
change his mind? He found a way of making jogging fun--the West Van
Seawall--not a hill in sight, plus it has some of the best views in the
house for Stanley Park, Lion's Gate Bridge, and Vancouver. Did I
mention the cruise ships going by at 5:30 AM and 6:00 PM (May thru
September only). If you time it right you may even see the sunrise or
sunset. We've attempted both, and I have to admit the sunset wins hands
down over the sunrise. Kelvin even had to stop running to enjoy the
spectacular view (or maybe that was just an excuse to take a break).
Anyway, I can safely say (and I think Kelvin will agree), if he can do
it, anybody can.
The West Vancouver Centennial Seawalk connects Ambleside
Park and Dundarave Park. The distance from Dundarave Pier to the
Dog park at Ambleside is approximately 3.5 km (7km return).
