Stanley Park is like a distillation of some of the best parts of San Francisco all in one place: spectacular evergreens, a beautiful garden, awesome ocean vistas, an aquarium, 2 restaurants with scenic ocean views. All that's missing is Fisherman's Wharf .

We stayed in Vancouver for a week and spent 3 days in the park at some stage. It really does make you wish you had something like it in the uk. There are a whole host of activities to choose from and the beaches are fantastic.

As I was limited on time my brother drove me through the park stoping at the many points of interest, and even though it rained all the time I was there it was still a great day out.

I just read that Stanley Park was just named the best city park in the world. It makes sense to me. I grew up in Vancouver and have been attending the park my entire life. I now enjoy taking my family to the park and we frequent the acquarium. A fantastic learning place for my daughter.

With views of ocean and mountains Stanley Park is a treasure in Vancouver. Miles of hiking/biking/walking trails, beautiful beaches, gardens and many rest areas. A fabulous place to get away from city life in the city.
