Pacific Spirit Park is a tranquil haven of fresh forest air, over 73km of cedar-lined pathways, and many flora and fauna. Hike, trail run, walk your dog, or take the mountain bike out for a spin. Depending on the time of day, you might even see the sun peeking through the trees for the perfect photo opportunity!
