North America's third-largest park draws eight million visitors per year, many of whom may skate or walk past you on the Seawall, a scenic, 5.5-mile path running along the water on the park's perimeter. It's just one of many trails among the park's 1,000 acres, which also house an aquarium, nature center and other recreational facilities.

Carve out a half day and take a memorable walk or bike ride through Stanley Park. Be sure to experience the rain forest option and go through the heart of the park - simply breathtaking. We enjoyed an 8 mile bike ride - perfect way to experience Vancouver and build an appetite for the many wonderful restaurant options.

A large park on the edge of the city of Vancouver, riddled with footpaths for walking, biking or skating. Lots of places to explore.

The bulk of my visit to the park was walking along the water from a hotel in Vancouver. It is a beautiful, clean, well kept area. Early in the morning it is gorgeous but of an evening it is very busy.

We rented a tandem bike at the harbor and rode around the park. A great way to see this fabulous park, for sure. If I had more time in the city, I would have made a repeat trip. I'll visit Stanley anytime I'm in Vancouver--beautiful!

With such an extensive park so close to the city centre, Stanley Park really needs many hours or a full day to truly appreciate the park. There is an hour long horse-drawn tour (~$39 adult). Instead or as well you could visit the aquarium (~$36 adult) or minature railway (~$7 adult) or just wander the park. For faster access, bring... More

This park has something for everyone! 5 of us rented bikes nearby, and rode the approximately 6 miles around the park, stopping frequently for pictures of the Vancouver skyline above the small boat marina, the statue of the mermaid perched on the rock, the dragon, and gorgeous rose garden. It's a good thing we rented the bikes for the day... More

Can't believe that this lovely park and open space in one of the most beautiful spaces in BC is completely public and free to visitors. Beaches, gardens, bike paths, food venues, walking paths, horse-drawn carriages and hop-on-hop-off buses open up this beautiful park within the reach of anyone.

A true treasure of Vancouver. Hike inside for a better view. Not as crowded and the gardens are gorgeous.

Do it! Do it! Rent a bike from one of the vendors and take a trip around the sea wall at Stanley Park. The views are amazing of the wide expanse of the bay coupled with the mountains cascading down. You can bring a picnic OR there are concession stands at a couple of places. It is up to you... More

My Wife and I visited Stanley Park while in Vancouver. We rented bikes and rode around the park, which is well worth it. The trails are relatively easy and allow for great picture taking along the way. It also gives you wonderful views of the city while you're riding. It certainly reminds me of San Diego waterfront when you are... More
