Fabulous having such great parkland in the city. Lots to see and do, or just wander and enjoy the view.

You must go. Plan to spend a few hours hiking, biking, running or walking through the many paths and areas of this beautiful urban park. Seasonal activities, installations and events make this a must visit attraction.

Stanley Park is a must see in Vancouver. There are great walks round and through the park with points of interest at frequent intervals. This is a fantastic asset for the city and is wonderfully accessible from everywhere in the city. A great way to spend a day, or even more.

Stanley Park was ranked as one of the to do in most travel websites and I decided to go even though my legs were aching from the walking for past few days. Rented a bike and cycled around the park to take in the views.... The park is much much better than what I had expected. The ride around the... More

We purposely drove 90 mins to get to Vancouver on a rainy day just to take city view pictures from this beautiful park. There is no free parking in the park that we know of. Parking was $2.25/hr from meters available everywhere. And honestly on a Sunday it was so quiet. We parked by the main totem poles and were... More

Stanley park is one of the landmarks of Vancouver. It has beautiful views of downtown, Canada place, mountains and ocean. It's great for walking,biking, rollerblading or jogging. You can visit the Vancouver aquarium or enjoy picnic. There are also few beaches you can tan or play with the kids. Also a small water park that kids love.

We were blown away by how close to the city is it. Once you enter the grounds, it's like you've driven hours away from the city. The park boasts an aquarium, beautiful seawall that is filled with walkers, cyclist, rollerbladers and runners. The streets are lined with old growth trees and heavy foliage. You have beautiful views of the city,... More
