Must see in Vancouver with lots of scenic views of ocean, trees, bridge and mountains. Awesome drive around the park. Always a relaxing place to go as a local. I miss the zoo as a kid though.

This was the place that made me wish that I was living in Vancouver. It was calm and relaxing, certainly recommended for a refreshing walk.

Kinda creepy driving around at night. I hear its open 24/7. Not safe. Did not want to get out of car.

So much history here. Old villages before it became a park. Many First Nations on sight to interpret the land, culture and history. Very beautiful sights throughout the park suitable for all ages!

Larger than Central Park and wonderfully picturesque. Well worth a ramble or if you're feeling energetic a bike ride or a run.

The possibilities are limitless for walking, jogging, running or cycling along all of it or just part of it from any starting point, either downtown, Granville Island or points in between. The seawall extends from Coal Harbour around the perimeter of Vancouver's jewel,... More

Extremely popular, and with good reason. My partner and I got there early and walked the sea-wall first, taking a bit under 3 hours to leisurely complete the circuit.

Stanley park is a must see for those that are visiting Vancouver for the first time or if you are a resident. Very peaceful and beautiful park and most esp enjoyed the seawall and the walk.

This is THE classic walk to do while in Vancouver. Walk the whole seawall and also explore the heart of the park. A day experience.
