Loved the size and layout of this verdant park. The ecosystem appears to be diverse, infrastructure and facilities are very well maintained, and the variety of wildlife for viewing is astounding -- we saw as much in 2 days in Stanley Park as we did in 2 weeks in Alaska. Lots of migratory and water fowl in particular. We were shocked to have a male raccoon approach us without fear in broad daylight -- kind of spooky given the generally nocturnal nature of racs. We scurried further down the path and found a man feeding 2 families of raccoons -- mothers and babies -- by hand (he dropped animal food onto the ground for them). It was fascinating to see the raccoons interact with each other, including fighting briefly. (This unnatural interaction may not end well for human visitors or the raccoons.)
Conclusion: Stanley Park is a "don't miss" if you are visiting this lovely city.
