Right now the water is too cold to go in and enjoy it (at least for me), but in summer we do go swimming here. The water is shallow a long way out, almost to the point that it's difficult for adults to submerge themselves if the tide's out, so it's very safe for small children.
The playground is a big draw here for sure: I'd rate it as one of the best in the Vancouver area. It's big, and there's a good variety of swings, slides and climbing equipment for the kids to explore
In short, if you're looking for a grand day out with your kids around Vancouver, this place is awesome. There's plenty of free parking, and the only thing to watch out for is that it's often windy: bring an extra sweater or jacket for everyone so nobody gets cold!
