I know there is a similar thread for this topic but it was asking for the best geocaches in the Vancouver Area, I am looking for the park or area where I will be able to find the most caches.

 

I am in Vancouver for a few days and wanted to find a family friendly area where there might be a bunch of caches that I could find. We would like to keep it within some walking distance.

 

If anybody has any information on any large parks that contain some caches it would be greatly appreciated!

The Vancouver park with the greatest number of caches is probably the Pacific Spirit Regional Park on the Point Grey peninsula on the west side of Vancouver (near UBC). Despite what you may be hearing in the news today and in the days to come, the park is quite safe. It has a large number of easy walking trails, covering quite the distance but also has a number of parking areas where you can drive to access caches instead of walking for many kilometres. The terrain is varied, covering Pacific Northwest temperate rainforest (ie big coniferous trees), hardwood forests, peat bogs, harbour cliffs, and kilometres of sandy beaches.

 

There quite a number of traditional caches, a few multi's, a few puzzles, an earthcache, and the oldest cache in BC.

.... in the Vancouver Area, I am looking for the park or area where I will be able to find the most caches.

Myself and geodug have placed 55 caches around the Burnaby Lake Area. This is all level/easy terrain, stroller accessible, plenty of parking, or you can take Skytrain to the Sperling Station , cross the pedestrian overpass and start there. There are also several other caches around the lake for a total of over 60. This is about a 5+ hour walk when caching.

Some other Great parks, but not as dense (also higher level terrain) are:

 

Tynehead Park in Surrey

Area: http://coord.info/GCQF27

 

Minnekhada Regional Park in Coquitlam

Area: http://coord.info/GC28NXV

 

Stanley Park (of course!) in Down Town Vancouver (it is very large to walk though).

 

Campbell Valley Regional Park in Langley (Hugh park and Tons of caches, very long walks)

Area: http://coord.info/GC1RTRY

 

The North Shore (North/West Vancouver) has many longer hiking caches also.
