While Granville Island is most famous for its waterfront public market, eclectic shops and diverse arts community, the world-renowned peninsula is also home to some hidden outdoor spots that are perfect for spending a quiet day outdoors with kids.
Amongst the remnant rusty buildings of the once industrial manufacturing area, are lush pockets of tree-lined parks, perfect for reading quietly by the water or enjoying family picnics on the grass. With endless take-out dining options in and around the Public Market, Granville Island is the place to be on a warm sunny day.
Here are the 5 best spots to take your food-to-go for a picnic in the park in Granville Island.
