Loved visiting this park. No matter what season it is, it's gorgeous! Lots of different things to do there, but my favourite is walking around the seawall - be prepared though, it's longer than it seems!

Rent bikes to enjoy it even more. Any season is a good time to visit. You can't come to Vancouver without a visit to Stanley Park! It would be like going to NYC and not visiting Central Park.

Stanley Park is Vancouver's jewel of nature, with many sparkling facets. It sits on a peninsula surrounded by the waters of Burrard Inlet and English Bay where cargo ships are often anchored and, in summer, sailboats skim along. At its heart is the ancient, primeval forest which nature-lovers will appreciate. On its periphery are many amenities like a well-planned walk/bike... More

We thank our forefathers who had the foresight to retain this huge natural park next to Downtown Vancouver. One of the prettiest park in North America. Great jogging and cycling path. Wonderful beaches with spectacular views.

No trip to Vancuver can be without a visit to Stanley Park. Whether you go to the aquarium or the miniature train, swim or go to the splash park (with walk-in people dryers!) or take a walk, cycle or rollerblade around the sea wall, the park is stunning. Bigger than NYC's Central Park!

Nice to have in the city. Good running area. Always nice to have some green space. Close to water is good.

As a kid growing up Stanley Park was known for its Animal Zoo and Aquarium. The zoo is no longer for many years but the 7 mile walk or bike ride around the sea wall is something to behold. It truly shows the beauty of our coastline and location compared to any other city. It is truly breathtaking in my... More

Beautiful place all season. Lots of bike and walking paths. The amazing Seawalk goes around the edge of the Park and takes you right into areas of the City. View across Burrard Inlet towards both North and West Vancouver are great at night. Lots of parking around and in the park. Beautiful, peaceful place to have a picnic as a... More
