Spent an entire afternoon walking the trails. If you are doing a hop off/on bus, it is long distances between stops. You might want to consider renting a bike.

Lots to see and do, and beautiful views from points along the seawall. Highly recommend rendting bikes and doing the 10k loop along the seawall. An easy 2-hour ride and a great way to view the scenery.

This was our second visit to Stanley Park. It is so big and has so much variety, that we didn't find the part of the park that we'd been to our first time around a few years ago. The gardens are lovely, hiking trails are abundant, waterside walks are wide and multi-use friendly, and the people watching is great! We... More

We walked around the Park. A mere 9km, very enjoyable route, loads of cyclists, runners, rollerbladers and fabulous views, monuments and sights. Do go to the aquarium and the rose garden! Loved it.

A lovely place to spend a day. Lots of beautiful views. We paid $25 or $30 for a family day pass to use their on-and-off bus service to go around the perimeter, stopping at a beach for a while and to grab a bite to eat.

It is very peaceful and serene in at least parts of the park, which is very large. But, there are no interesting statues, reflecting pools with fountains, or gardens (at least none that we saw). The most interesting element is the Vancouver Aquarium, which is definitely worth seeing.

We spent one day riding a bike around Stanley Park, it was a beautiful sunny day, so the Park was very busy, it has great bike tracks and a lovely beach with a coffee, food, drinks shop, lots of parking and many things to do. Take a backpack with you with some water, if it is a hot day, Great... More
