Did some walking within the park which was very entertaining with all of the plants blooming for spring. Beware that you don't get run over by a bike! Went to the aquarium which was a disaster! Had to wait in a very long line to get a ticket then wait in another line after purchasing a tciket to get hand... More

we grabbed a coffee from starbucks before going to the park and went for a walk along the seawall to see the totem poles. Was a nice morning with lots of people out running. A great thing to do but nothing special to see. If you like running, my boyfriend ran around the perimeter of the park along the sea... More

Just as I had remembered. Beautifully gardens and a great themed miniature railway which my toddlers loved.

After paying money to go up Grouse Mountain and to see Capilano Bridge, this park is equally engrossing and yet it is free. Easy to find and lots of nice views.

I visited Vancouver to attend a conference. During my free time, I toured on the hop on/off bus. This park is totally awesome. I love photographing nature and this park presented many opportunities for me to do so. It is very walkable and the weather was gorgeous. I was not brave enough to try to navigate the park via bike... More

Walked through the park several times on a recent visit. A great spot to unwind whether running or walking. Although we live in the province, you would be hard pressed to find better Old Growth forest to walk through anywhere. An added bonus was seeing Wood Ducks on Beaver Lake. While I've wanted to see them for many years, I... More

My husband and I enjoyed biking around and through the park with our rented bicycles! There are picturesque views at almost every turn. The paths are well marked about where the bike lane is. We took pic with our phones of the park map (they are scattered throughout the park) to help us get around. Definitely want to go again.

I visited Vancouver for a week and fell in love inmediately, the water, the people, the feel of the city is great. Stanley Park is another reminder that Canada has so much to offer, we started at the hotel (Westin) located just inside the boardwalk from the harbor to the Park, we rented bicicles one of them with a trailer...

There is so much to do in this park. If you can bike, you need to rent a bike and cycle round it. There are several places to stop and have coffee. There are several good beaches (called First, Second and Third Beaches) so take beach needs. There is a very good aquarium. Make sure you see the sea otters... More
