I am thrilled that you enjoyed the Park. Stanley Park Ecology Society offers regular nature walks if you would like to learn about the beautiful ecology you enjoyed. Hope to see you on one of them!

A nature education centre along the Stanley Park trail. It's worth a visit. They do a lot of conservation work and community education, such as preserving the habitat of bats in the urban setting. :)

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.
