Amazing views and walks in a magnificently well set out area. Great cityscape views too. The totem poles are a must see, and no outing is complete without a quick spot of shopping for postcards in the well appointed shop. Will stop by in the summer for a picnic for sure.

Stanley Park is larger than Central Park and we Vancouverites love our park. There are still some 1000 year old trees in the forest, moss covered and beauty. Horse drawn carriage rides, the Aquarium, the Tea House Restaurant and Gift Shop, walking the seawall and biking. There is an activity to suit everyone.

It is quite a beautiful park, but I am shocked in the inhumane, rude and impolite way that parking enforcement officers act. They appear to be actually just waiting for rental or out-of-town cars to park. There are not many of paying booths around, and most out-of-town people are completely clueless in how to use the "easy park" screen. It... More

A must if you visit Vancouver, city transit will get you there or many tour operators offering varied tours of this historic park. You can walk, cycle, or drive around the perimeter of the entire park. Beautiful vistas of coal harbor, the Lions Gate Bridge, and the north shore abound at every turn inside the park. For those who enjoy... More

Whether in summer or winter, this place is lovely to visit. There are walking paths that one can spend hours walking. There is also aquarium here as well as few shops. The walking paths have view of the water as well as interesting little statues that will entertain people.

If you love the outdoors, this is the perfect place to escape the city and to get lost in the huge park. If you are outdoor inclined I recommend renting a bicycle to see the majority of the park. Don't forget to check out Beaver pond too, A great place to skim rocks on ice or water. Perect for the... More

Went to the Vancouver Aquarium which was a fantastic experience for all especially the children. Be sure to catch Scuba Claus (Santa scuba diving in giant tank with fishes) at 1130am and also the Polar Express 4D show. Buy tickets online to see the lights at Stanley Park. Trees are decorated with Christmas lights, lit displays and take the train... More
