Kids Market/Waterpark on Granville Island:
The market is the perfect place to keep the kids entertained for hours! It has an arcade, play area, kids souvenirs stores, and food. There’s also a waterpark/playground as well so the kids can play in the water or play in the playground if they rather stay dry! I recommend taking a water taxi there to make the commute even more fun!
A great science museum to take kids to learn, explore, and try new things. It’s especially great when it rains because it’s mostly all indoors. However, this place isn’t just for kids because adults can have fun too. The puzzles next to the café/restaurants are a fun challenge. Upstairs, there are plenty of sections for the kids to learn about physics, the human body, and activities for the kids to gain hands on opportunities
