You basically have two options for Stanley Park. Either hire a bike to cycle the outside of the park or walk and explore the interior. A walk through the interiors lets you explore the more interesting parts of the park and actually feels like your in a park. On a sunny day the small beaches are nice too.

There is so much to do in this expanse of Stanley Park. There is the newly redone Acquarium, gardens, seawall walk (over 10 kms), Brockton Oval, kids waterpark. The views of the bridges, the North Shore,, bikr lanes, guided horsedrawn carriage rides, totem poles etc and the city are simply spectacular

An easy walk around the beautiful waterfront from Canada Place, there's regular places to stop, rest and take in the incredible sights of the harbour and waterfront. The... More

This is a beautiful park with paths for walking, biking and roller skating. There are flower gardens, playgrounds, a beach area and lots of space to just relax outdoors. The seawall takes you up close to the water with great views of bridges, sailboats and the mountains beyond. Bikes are rented just outside the park up the street with bike... More
