Best way is by bike ... Just a bridge but the concept of biking in such a cool park and riding below the bridge is nice. The view is great, really worth as part of the route around the park.

This three lane bridge makes a unique humming sound when crossing over the metal structure. The view and location are wonderful. You can drive through Stanley Park and find parking nearby if you want to walk or bike the bridge. Or you can simply drive it. If you do, head over to Ambleside area of West Vancouver ( or perhaps...

this is the bridge that takes one from basically Stanley Park in Vancouver over to North Vancouver. Pretty much your typical bridge - not much more to say. one interesting note -- the middle lane changes direction on a schedule (maybe every 20 minutes?) -- it's not like, say the Golden Gate which switches direction based on the flow of...

The bridge view is part of the Stanley Park charm and complements the pictures during a clear day. During our trip we went to the park during two consecutive days, on the first couldn't see the bridge at all, on the second day it was a splendor.

This reminds me of the Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco. It is a 100 years old. I looked up to the bridge from Stanley park and also riding across to north Vancouver. It's iconic. Prepare ur camera when u head to Stanley park to take lots of photos with this.

It was a look into a bit of Vancouver history and how a family made this bridge possible and changed future events and changed the population of the area.

This is placed at a very picturesque point in vancouver. The best way is on a bicycle but I chose to walk. There was traffic problem because of a marathon, and the long trek through stanley park took me to the gate. The views from here are spectacular and you need a good quality Digital SLR to capture these. Built... More

Make it a part of a day trip in Vancouver. Start in the east and see Queen Elizabeth Park (for free). Travel on to downtown Vancouver and head to Stanley Park and Vancouver Aquarium. Then onto Lions Gate Bridge and onto Horseshoe Bay.

Staying in Stanley Park

Neighborhood Profile
Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views, beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical getaway spot for friends and families, especially as it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its best equestrian outlets.
