Along Point Grey Road, Vancouver has a number of small waterfront parks, all of which have wonderful views, all of which used to have homes on them.

The westernmost one was also the last to be created — Jean Beaty Park, named for the homeowner who sold the land to the Park Board for far below market value. 

Today the homes on either side are valued at more than $10 million, but the park itself is a little smaller than the other waterfront pocket parks, with two paths limiting the amount of green space.

But if you live within a couple blocks and want a serene view, you’ll have no complaints.
