North America's third-largest park draws eight million visitors per year, many of whom may skate or walk past you on the Seawall, a scenic, 5.5-mile path running along the water on the park's perimeter. It's just one of many trails among the park's 1,000 acres, which also house an aquarium, nature center and other recreational facilities.

Walking along the seawall, Stanley Park is an easy park to access by foot. I love walking in and you can head to the Aquarium. Walking through the park, you get the serenity of the tress and calm, and away from the bustle of the city. There are also washrooms around the park which is great. It's the close to... More

We rode the Trolley on a tour of Vancouver. We got off at the Granville Island stop and walked across the bridge to the island. Had a delightful lunch at a Culinary Arts school in an upscale restaurant named Bistro 101. After lunch we walked around the island stopping at different shops. Island has a marina, restaurants and plenty of... More

Also on a recommendation we used the hop on hop off bus which visited Stanley Park as one of the main stops. Walking between the float homes, photographing seals or walking around the beautifully laid out rose gardens, there was something here for everyone. Unfortunately, we did not have enough time available to take in all of the attractions available.... More

It is a huge park with different attractions. Absolutely excellent for families with kids. My children went to see police horses. A police lady gave them a tour in the barn and told them a story of every horse there.

Reading the history of Stanley park was interesting. Seeing it's breadth was also breath-taking. I honestly only traveled the south and eastern sections of this park, since I visited in March, the sun sets pretty early--and no one wants to get lost in a park at night! After a harrowing Saturday morning, eating, I took a walk on the seawall.... More

Stanley Park is a fabulous way to spend the day in the heart of Vancouver. Walk old growth forest, visit the world famous aquarium. The amazing rose gardens in summer are beautiful and the totem park speaks of our aboriginal heritage.

Stanley Park is like a forest within the Vancouver City limits. It is surrounded by water on 3 sides and the city on the other side. From walking trails through the trees to walking or cycling on the seawall around the park. Attractions like the Aquarium, Totem poles, extremely old trees and a lighthouse. One can travel around the Park... More

This is a definite must see when visiting Vancouver. We hired bikes, it's an easy 9km ride around their beautiful coastline- don't miss out on seeing this park.
