Owner description: North America's third-largest park draws eight million visitors per year, many of whom may skate or walk past you on the Seawall, a scenic, 5.5-mile path running along the water on the park's perimeter. It's just one of many trails among the park's 1,000 acres, which also house an aquarium, nature center and other recreational facilities.

“So lucky to have this green "gem" in our midst”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Truly one of the best things about living in Vancouver is Stanley Park. Just a great place to spend a summer day/afternoon.

“Gorgeous urban park experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The seawall is self explanatory if you've seen photos of Vancouver and the trails (if you can get and read a map of them) are well groomed and beautiful. Stay far away from the concession stands and restaurants as they are tourist traps. Bring your own snacks, get a map from the Visitor's centre or a friendly Parkboard worker that you will likely run across between 7 and 3. Lock your car and enjoy. Make 2nd Beach your starting point......enjoy!

“Love it here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We adore stanley park. So bizarre to have a rain forrest in the middle of a city. The trees are out of this world. Go and see Beaver Lake. V Interesting to see all of the trees gnawed down and their dens. Lots of wildlife to be seen- Black squirrels, racoons. The aquarium too.
We did notice this time that the first restaurant area (behind the building in our view) was disgracefully dirty. The bins were over spilling and it really annoyed us that they'd not keep ontop of their rubbish with so much wildlife around. They need a shouting at- That's naughty.
Get your walking boots on and go explore!!!
