Worlds longest seawall walk, totem polls, beaches, and wonderful views. Plenty of parking spots, lovely hikes along the seawall and into the interior (plus- these are less crowded and lovely), and lots of play areas for kids.

If you have to pick one activity while in Vancouver, go to Stanley Park. The drive around is lovely, with beaches/waterfront along the outer loop as well as an internal forest. For walking or bicycling, you can choose well-groomed (paved) flat loop around the greenway-...More

One of a kind, quiet at this time of the year, foliage of all kinds, to enjoy new colours and shades, lots of birds, a calm seaside, forest and lagoons to enjoy, several benches to seat and rest, nature in a big city!

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.

Yes, the aquarium is in the park so a few hours there, and a few hours enjoying the park will make for a nice day.
