a very nice, quaint park. Great for families. easy drive or bike ride. Things to stop and do. The drive around park is out outer borders of the island, so the view is wonderful.

Great place to enjoy the day hiking, biking or picnicking. The walk around the park along the seawall is tremendous. The trail is paved and there are separate lanes for bikers and walkers/runners. The views of Vancouver and the shipping channels (with big tankers in line) are fantastic. The people you meet along the way are very friendly.

Having lived in Vancouver previously I was wanting to revisit Stanley Park with my daughter. The Sea Wall walk was perfect, although having to move out of the way for discourteous cyclists using the footpath not cycle ways was very annoying. Didn't have a lot of time so were unable to go exploring the interior walkways and trails that zig... More

This is a beautiful park sitting at the edge of the sea bordered by the city. Such a nice retreat from the busy city. The park is circled by a bike/walking path that allows visitors the enjoy nature while riding.

We were there late March and the color was wonderful. Daffodils, tulips, and other spring flowers offered bright touches to a sunny day. The cherry and apple trees were also in bloom, creating a picture perfect visit.

We walked the sea wall from the waterfront to Stanley park. It was a lovely walk but a long way. You can hire bikes if you would rather. We walked around but places to eat were rather sparse - in fact the only public place open was a tiny kiosk - I guess we are here before high season.

Even in the rain, biking and walking in this gorgeous and vast park is the highlight of visiting Vancouver!

Great walks - birds, seal and a beaver! One great view after another while walking the perimeter path. Separate path for walkers and bikes allows paying attention to sights. Fair distance but not strenuous - plan for a few hours.
