Vancouver’s Supernatural Parks

Supernatural filming locations Vancouver

As many of you know, earlier this year we did a 7,000 mile roadtrip across North America. And because Supernatural is basically The Show for both of us and the one that started the whole serious fangirling business, we simply had no other option than to start our long journey from Vancouver, Canada where they film it all. Here’s a few Supernatural parks anyone can visit. 

First, there’s Alta Vista Reservoir Park that they used for this scene between Zachariah and Adam in episode 5×18, “Point of No Return“. It’s a cozy little playground in a residential area and quite easily recognizable by the bright decorations hanging on the fences surrounding it. We went there on a brisk, early Canadian morning and spent a few minutes taking photos… and missing Adam. (Poor boy. Will they ever get him out of the pit?!)

Second, the beautiful Cecil Green Park. This is one of the locations they used in 6×20, “The Man Who Would Be King” so basically we were walking in the footsteps of our dear overlord Misha Collins. Which is always a pretty good feeling. The park isn’t as easy to access as the playground, but it’s there. It sort of feels like entering someone’s backyard, so we only went there for these photos and exited quite swiftly.

It’s an amazing area to visit, though. There’s the Museum of Anthropology right next to it and some very pretty shore trails you can follow if you’re in the mood for a little hike. Sadly, we didn’t have time for any of this awesomeness as we were there purely for tightly scheduled sceneframing shenanigans.

Which makes us think we need to go back to Vancouver as soon as possible. Maybe do another visit to the set of this one little tv show

As a cherry on top we have to mention one of the most amazing Supernatural parks for us personally: we discovered the location of the Supernatural shooting on our last full day in Vancouver, and got to meet Misha Collins and Tahmoh Penikett. We had a fun little chat with them and some extremely friendly crew members and drove away super happy.
