We went there on January 14th 2017. It was a sunny day, beautiful place for a walk or a run, if you're into running ! You can walk for hours. We did a 15km walk around the park, stopped at a view point. In the summer you have some shops up there, but they were renovating so it was closed.... More

Stanley Park is just lovely. If you like a long or short leisurely walk this park is for you. It meanders along the edge of the park beside a very active waterway.

Cycling around Stanley Park on the Seawall was a great experience! We rent bikes at Denman St. for about $15/person and biked along the seawall. The scenery was stunning!

Despite the freezing weather in Vancouver during January this year, we walked through Stanley Park twice. I'd say that winter is not the best time to see it but it is still a beautiful park and definitely worth a walk. The first day we walked all around the waters edge and the second day we did the middle of the... More

Something different every time we visit. Last time we finally got to see and hear the 9 0'clock gun. The hidden jem is a lake in the middle of the park. Beaver Lake a must see

I have done Stanley Park twice now. The first time I biked it and it took just over an hour, and she he second time I walked and it took just over 3 hours. Both times I had a great time and took lots of great photos

I thought this a delightful place to visit. Obviously popular with locals and visitors alike. Lots to do and see. Went back to the aquarium the next day and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Stunning, huge park right on DT. Could spend all day here. My fiance and I cycled around the park (9km). Easy cycle. Mostly flat. Definately the best way to see the park and surrounding beaches.
