Squirrels and raccoons added extra appeal to this lovely park. Options for various lengths of walks. A fabulous meal in the cafe in the centre of the park.

Walkable attraction with trolley car tour option, good restaurants in the park. Rose gardens are plentiful and are comparable to a botanical garden.

The Park is huge and gorgeous! So many trails to hike. The drive around the park is nice as well. Stop and see the totem poles.

If you like to run, walk, cycle, skate, take photos, play, fish, drive, or just simply sit and watch the beautiful skyline/harbor of Vancouver, this is the place to be! My travel companion, an avid photographer, had great day snapping pictures of the beautiful Fall colors. There is an aquarium inside the park (I dint visit it though). I recommend... More

We visited Vancouver, B.C for a long weekend with our two small children. The park had ample space for everyone to walk and play, and there was even a bar and grill (Stanley Park Bar and Grill) within the park. Following that, the cities aquarium is also located inside the park. Great location. Really great for families!

It's easy to see why Vancouver always performs well in quality of life surveys. Stanley Park is a huge area with designated paths for cycling and for walking and large open grassed area and places with forests. You can easily spend a few hours here: walking around the park via the Seawall will take at least 2 hours.

Unfortunately our first visit here was a rainy day and the bridge was fogged in but we could still see the parks potential. Luckily we were on a bus tour that took us around the park and told us some of its history. Would have been lovely to have hired a bike and wandered around at our own pace but... More

You can spend a whole day here and not see it all. Plenty of things to do including an aquarium, rose, garden, and restaurants. Wonderful ocean and bay views.
