Stanley Park is just huge. We probably needed to spend more time with a map before heading in, but it was just gorgeous with beautiful views. We discovered Prospect Point Restaurant and had an amazing view looking out over Lion's Gate Bridge. The food is a bit spendy, but was very good w/ great service. There was a little souvenir...

It is indeed one of the greatest urban parks of the world! A must go if you are in Vancouver. You can take an hour or half a day exploring this 400 hectares park! There are various ways to explore the park. Walking, biking, roller blade, or by horse-drawn carriage tour. There are some areas of the park that bikes... More

Go see the Totem Poles! We walked and did not cover most of the park, it is massive! We sat lots of folks on bikes and that seemed like the best way to see the park. It was pretty easy to navigate and there are restaurants and shopping inside. Its really beautiful in there.

We rented bikes and rode around Stanley Park on the bike-path. It wasn't too crowded, although I heard it can get pretty crowded on the weekends. The views are beautiful along the seawall and you can bring a bathing suit and go to the swim beach along the way. It also passes by a public pool. There is an aquarium... More

We rode around the park, but once you start out you have to go all the way round as the cycle path only works on a one way system. Superb park with lovely views across the harbour and lots to see along the way.

Beautiful public park on a peninsula just northwest of the city centre. Like New York's Central Park (but bigger), this is where the natives go to play away from their urban condos. Gorgeous views of the harbour and Vancouver's skyline. Recreational facilities, hike and bike trails, exhibit areas abound. Something for everyone. Yes it's crowded, but everyone seems to be...

Great park in Vancouver. Really a must visit location. Approximately the same size as Central Park in New York City. The horse drawn carriage tour is excellent; as well as, the Vancouver Aquarium. Restaurant in the middle of Stanley Park was wonderful.

Amazing Park, considering the number of people we saw heading toward the park we though it would be packed but were pleasantry surprised, by the space and sometimes solitude the park offered, just on ething look out for cyclists some do tend to ignore the rules of the road, and therefore crossing the roads do need a second look
