We walked from Canada Place along the waterfront around to Stanley Park. We saw the Totem Poles and the 9 o'clock Gun. Everything very accessible and on a lovely sunny day take a picnic and spend the day in the park. There were tours on horse drawn carriages although we though these were expensive but if you don't like walking... More

Stanley Park has something for everyone. Young to old - active or passive. We love to bike around the park in the morning. It's always a special treat.

Walked here to just take a breath and admire the fabulous flowers and trees. So much history in this park and some great statues. Colours of the autumn leaves made it extra special.

Stanle Park is a great park to visit , jog or walk around. To walk completely around you will need 2 plus hours, the walk or job is breath taking and you will see some great sites of the harbour front, Lions Gate Bridge and some very old trees which are very impressive. On some days you might even be... More

We went to Stanley Park on the hop on hop off bus. It is a beautiful, very large park. It is perfect to walk along the sea wall and enjoy the sites. Even though it was late September, the flowers/roses are still blooming. The sites are beautiful.

One of the world's must beautiful urban area parks. Easily accessible by walking from anywhere in downtown Vancouver. There are great walking paths throughout the park with benches readily available. We found the walk near the water around the park to be stunning, with some sandy beaches alongside.
