Even though I live in the West End, Stanley Park is too far to walk to, except maybe Lost Lagoon. I don't own a bicycle and, due to health issues, Third Beach and the North side are just too far away. Besides, my elderly parents would never make it to the Tea House anyway, even if we had all day. It's no problem really. I just drive to Jericho, Spanish Banks or Trout Lake instead. Thanks to the parks board, I'm a tourist in my own city. I'm looking forward to the day when they outright ban cars from the city, at which point I'll just move to the Okanagan. You guys can just ride your bikes around the homeless camps and enjoy your green economy. Good luck!
