We loved walking through the forest area of the park with the magnificent trees and the wildlife. The Totem Poles were cool and the walk alongside the river was so tranquil.

So much to see. Start at the beginning and work your way around. It changes as you go! Beautiful and a good work out for those who like active/brisk walks/runs.

I may need to spend a week in Van simply exploring Stanley Park by bike. We got to the park via car but you can take public transit. Apparently it is a bit dodgy in the evening so don't stay too late.

A beautiful park with fantastic views! Lots to see and do here - even if you just relax and "people watch."

Larger than Central Park in NYC, you have to spend time in this magnificent wonder. Around each corner are breathtaking examples of nature at its best

This is a lovely park away from the bustle of the city. Biking round the edge is a fun way to spend half a day.

Had beautiful weather and loved the park, enjoyed ten totem poles and reading the notes on some of the benches along the way. Got to the aquarium as it was closing but bought fresh cherries from a farmer in the field, yum. Loved the park, and easy to get to. Also has the hop on hop off if you're interested... More
