Stanley park is beautiful. Our family hired bikes nearby and enjoyed cycling along the Seawall once we discovered that it is a one way route ! Lovely views across the harbour, flowers in bloom and not too busy.

It was a sunny day when we visited and it was good to see so many people out enjoying the park. The trees, shrubs and flowers were a delight. This is an old park and a national treasure. It's a must see when you're in Vancouver.

How lucky are we to have one of the biggest (and most beautiful) public parks in North America? If you haven't spent time there recently - go! Walk, jog, ride, enjoy.

We enjoyed the horse and carriage ride around one side of the park. Had a nice time. They have blankets to keep warm if its cold. We ate at one of the restaurants while in the park. The park is well cared for and just a nice place to visit. Hope we can come again next time we're in BC!

It was so green and lush. Very large, with beautiful views of the mountains. We took the on and off bus through it and got off at various stops.

My husband and I decided to rent bicycles one afternoon to ride the seawall around Stanley Park. It had been many, many years since I had been on a bicycle so I was a little wary at first but we had such a great time! We ended up keeping the bikes a while longer and cycling down to Granville island.... More

This is beautiful park with colourful gardens, sweeping views, many walks and pieces of sculpture and cultural totem poles. We got agood grasp on the layout of Vancouver and a smattering of history. We would say it would be great place to take a picnic to in summer. If you wish to you can bike, walk or run its seawall... More

I cannot think of visiting Vancouver with walking the trails in Stanley Park. It is a credit to the city that the park is so well maintained for the public use. It's safe, clean and all through the year it's changing flora and fauna is a pleasure to behold. Prospect Point cafe at the highest point is worth a visit... More

We rode bikes round the whole park which was fantastic and done it in less than half the time. The tea house on the hill is a good little place fro a stop off for a cuppa too....
