Wintler Park serves as a great place to start a walk along the Waterfront Renaissance Trail. It is at the east end of the trail taking you just over 4 miles into the Vancouver waterfront. Along many areas you can choose to stick to the paved path, or take side trails down to the beach and walk along the river shore. There are also side trails to interesting view points such as the end of the Jetty at Tidewater Cove Marina and the Henry J. Kaiser Shipyard Memorial.
Be aware that Wintler Park is a very popular beach destination on sunny hot summer days and the parking will fill up. During the busy season it would be best to park somewhere else to walk the trail, such as at the Vancouver Water Resources Education Center or at parking for Marine Park.
