Overlooking the ocean and next to an incredible bridge (lions gate) this park has an aquarium, bike trails, hiking trails, lovely grounds to explore, tasty treats and a cool train for kids and the young at heart. Go on a nice day and picnic and explore. So much to... More

Loved Stanley Park - so much to do there. We watched the open air movie (every Tuesday night) which was great - you can take a picnic and it's a real family night out. We also used the lovely swimming pool ($3 each) - great for kids and adults alike with designated swimming lanes and slides etc. We visited the... More

We took the Stanley Park bus tour add on to the round the city tour. The park is magnificent. I would recommend doing the loop first and then going back to see the points of interest that attract you. For us it was the First Nation totem poles and the nearby visitor centre.

The entire park should be given at least half a day. There are many spots to stop & picnic, trails to hike, a mini train to catch, the Vancouver Aquarium, the Seawall, the pond where you can feed the wildlife, nice tea room & restaurant & the many views that are worth the visit alone.

In addition to biking the park's circumference, be sure to explore some of the interior bike trails. Just beautiful, so quiet, and lush. It's a great workout and a wonderful way to experience the park My wife and I rented a tandem bike at Spokes Bike Rental, which is the first shop closest to the park. Although Spokes employees were... More

Excellent space for recreation. Cycle, walk, run or just sit and admire the weather. Try the lake and pond, and don't miss the outstanding gardens.

If you want to forget you're surrounded by millions of people - go to Stanley Park. While you're meandering through the trees, you'll occasionally get a glimpse of Vancouver's glass skyline and say to yourself, "wow ... this is such a charming city."
