There’s a funny story behind how we discovered this one actually. Sarah and I were sitting in her apartment in Kitstilano craving some Indian takeout dinner which we then proceeded to order off of the first reputable location we could find (Judge’s). Little did we know that this place is actually in downtown Vancouver – we clearly didn’t look at the address when we ordered – and on top of that, they didn’t provide delivery services to our area.
In the end, we got in the car to make our way downtown and decided that, if we were already out of the house, we could find a cute place to eat our dinner. Kits and Jericho Beaches came to mind, so we drove along the roads in between them scouring for a free parking spot. We didn’t find anything satisfactory, and were about to give up and just take our deliciously smelling food home, when we took a right turn and came across the tiny Jean Beaty Park.
By tiny, I literally mean tiny. The park is made up of a patch of grass, a bench and a single tree. But, behind the bushes at the edge of the grass, where no one would think to look, a little staircase built into the stone leads down to the waterfront, where moss-covered rocks provide optimal seating for a beautiful Vancouver sunset.
