Spring at Beaver Lake sees many new additions to the park such as ducklings following their mothers and learning how to navigate the Park.
Beaver lake is an interesting interior walk within Stanley Park and is a suggested stop for any person able to hike the steep trail to it.
Encompassing a large brood of ducks within its confines and many water plant species not seen in the larger man-made Lost Lagoon, it is a popular place for photographers and naturalists enjoying the surrounding environment.
Cattails, lily pads and other plant varieties create a serene and beautiful locale which does not have a lot of human traffic due to the popularity of the seawall, but is one of Stanley Park's lush and more inviting interior spaces.
The beaver lake trail also circles the lake taking visitors around the lake's picturesque shoreline and through newer stands of forest surrounding it.
Many animal species can also be spotted here - its namesake is rare but sometimes seen looking for new trees to fell and many bird species have made their home on, around and above the lake due to its central location which shelters from wind, rain and most other undesirable weather. Turtles and other water loving creatures can be spotted as well as many thousands of bug species.
A great leisurely stroll, bring along some nature identification books and explore this beautiful lake.
