If you’ve read Active Vancouver by Roy Jantzen, I am sure you would agree with me that the author put his heart and soul into the book. It’s a perfect reference guide for any Lower Mainland resident or visitor who enjoys outdoors and is looking for a new place to explore. The book is finely written, with warmth and humour, and superbly organized. You can read about or search for an outing depending on: type of activity (hiking, biking, walking, kayaking), difficulty level, distance, transit accessibility, location, or type of participants (children, teens, seniors). The author provides excellent practical advice as to how to be safe, bring the right gear, and enjoy any park visit to its fullest. The historical and ecological insights give the book a unique flavour and make an outdoor adventure more relatable, more fascinating. (Submitted by Mariya)
