Parks and Trails

Urban parks and trails offer a natural escape, a recreational play space, and an explorative window into Vancouver WA. With 90 parks and 20 natural areas, you don’t have to go far to get in your morning walk or afternoon bike ride. Don’t leave the pups at home! Vancouver WA has several dog parks for your furry friend to get some fresh air and meet new friends. Find more information about parks and trails on the City of Vancouver’s Parks & Recreation website.
