Stanley park is filled with beautiful nature and these totem poles are perfect to stand by the tall trees. So many totem poles of all different colours. It takes no time or money to enjoy the beauty of these pieces of art.

This was a great addition to a day spent in the park. I am drawn to all things Native American and their spitituality and felt connected here. Be sure to stop by and see it if you are in the area, you won't be disappointed.

Near to the entrance of Stanley Park lies a place that radiates spiritual energy and serenity-- a place where you have to look up to completely capture the essence of the history of the place and the ingenious people who at one point looked up to the same pillars with magnanimity. The totem poles were more than just perfect spots... More

The totem poles are conveniently located in the park and each has a plaque to explain their story. They are right by the aquarium which was perfect for stop #2.

It may be nice if you have lived in a cave for your whole life and haven't seen a totem before, but this one is not special in any way. Just a few totems, next to a toilet and a gift shop. However its on the way when walking along the seawall, so stopoing there for a photo is maybe... More
