Great park for just anybody. Nice routes for hikers, romantic places for diner of lunch and fine nature. This is like a forest in a city. You can actually see wildlife there. Worth visiting, but please take your time for it. You might need to take water and lunch and can hike there all day.

We stayed at a hotel next to the park. What beautiful views walking along the stone walkway around the harbor. We started walking on the Coal Harbor side among cedar and maple trees. We walked to Prospect Point along with many others. It's perfect for biking along the sea wall too and can get jammed up along the points .... More

There are very nice pockets of pretty green space and some wonderful views of the water. Definitely worth a visit. Beware, however, if you drive as the routing is one-way for most of the park and congestion can be very bad at times.

Stanley Park is a great place to relax and/or exercise on a sunny day. There are separate bike and walking paths throughout the park. The totems are very interesting and impressive. There are great views of the waterfront. We took a tour drawn by horses around the almost 10 mile perimeter.

Stanley Park has not only the beauty of nature which can be seen from a car or tour bus, but also has wonderful walking, running, and bicycling trails if you have the time.

A definite if visiting Vancouver. We rented bikes and went through Stanley park in about 2 hours with stops and photo ops. A busy place so before 11 is best but that is the case with everything touristy. Bring water and take a break to enjoy the beach and sites. Totem poles was my hilight of the park and enjoying...

Wonderful area, really need a car unless you are really fit. Beautiful walk all around the wall . Got great views of the city from all angles. Had a meal in the gardens. Delicious food.

We had purchased a Hop on Hop off bus tour package and one of our first stops with the Stanley Park area. This is a treasure in Vancouver with a tremendous amount of attractions for an entire day of exploring if you are up to it. The seawall walk is definitely a highlight of the park but there are many... More
