I didn't realize they were all replicas until we arrived here. The poles are in Stanley Park on the east side. Very good replicas of the originals; enjoyed the originals at the anthropology museum better.

These poles are worth the visit while in Stanley Park. They can be accessed by walking, biking or car. They are worth a stop to see the hand carved details and stories behind each one. There is also a great gift/coffee shop in the area as well.

Certainly unique! It's not something you really think of finding in a modern era city. It definitely feels like something belonging to a small out of town village instead.

Interesting collection of Totem Poles to visit while in Stanley Park. Read the plaques that explain the history of Totem poles. There is one from the first woman carver Ellen Neel done in 1955. There is also an interesting sculpture "Shore to Shore" cast in bronze, it is a tribute to the ancestral connection between this area's Aboriginal and Portuguese... More

This area of Stanley Park is well worth a visit, or a stop if you are on the hop-on-hop-off bus. There area number of noteworthy totem poles that date to Canada's revival of "First Nation" culture.

The ultimate tourist trap drop off where all of the large tour buses stop. The location that sits between both sides of Stanley Park is great. You can easily circle this area. Always busy and it's home central for the horse driven tours. Locals steer clear preferring the beach areas or to walk the entire ocean parkway

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.
