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.

Great walking/running/cycling paths--be sure to get off the beaten track (AKA the Seawall) and experience the interior of the park. Very accessible; cool and pleasant on an unseasonably hot day. If you stay on the Seawall be sure to notice and obey the signage for foot and wheeled (cycling, skating) traffic, pull or step well to the side if stopping,... More

Went for a long walk along the seawall promenade and had a late lunch at the Tea House restaurant at Ferguson Point. Hopped back on the Hop-on/Hop-off bus which took us back to our hotel.

Hired my bike from Spokes and cruised around the Seawall all the way to Granville Island. Such beautiful scenery and easy to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Took me 2 hours with stopping and having an explore at the beaches and Totems..

We visited the totem poles in Stanley Park in August. They were both an inspiring and awesome sight. I enjoyed learning about the history of the individual monuments and the reason that the carver created them. It was also very interesting to learn about the different symbolic figures on the poles. As far as the poles themselves, they were colorful... More

We visited the Park by walking to it from our downtown hotel. Easy to get to. We walked the outer walking and bike path on a warm sunny day and it was great way to see some sights, walk under the Lions Gate Bridge and see the ships coming an going from the main harbour. We stopped by the beach... More

Great trails, easy to loose the crowds. The Totem poles are worth a look. The Seawall path gives great views across to Canada Place, see seaplanes taking off & landing. There's also views of the city's skyscrapers. A nice place to unwind.

Great position to get amazing views of the skyline of downtown Vancouver. Lovely relaxing park - do the hop on, hop off bus tour through it and jump off at the totem poles - well worth seeing, plus the aforementioned view. There are boats to take out, horse drawn buggy rides, and much more to see and do.

I spent two full days in Stanley Park and still didn't see or do everything! It was a wonderful experience! It is easy to get to the park. There is a bus that runs from downtown and takes you right into the park. Alternatively you can do what I did and walk from Canada Place in Downtown along the seawall.... More

One of the best things to do while in Vancouver. We rented bikes at Spokes (W. Georgia and Denman) which is super efficient. The park itself was GORGEOUS. A trip highlight!
