Night Quest was started over 20 years ago in Pacific Spirit Park as a celebration of the park’s birthday, as well as a recognition of the nocturnal animals that call Vancouver home. It’s a great nighttime activity for both adults and kids who want to escape from the bright lights of the city, and celebrate the more natural things in life.

This Saturday, March 22nd, Night Quest 2014 will be taking place at Pacific Spirit Regional Park, at the 16th Avenue entrance (400 metres west of Blanca Street).
