Owner description: 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.

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.

Very quaint restaurant. Nice view of the water. Only wish we would have had our sunglasses because the patio has a bit of a glare!

It's a lovely area that's not too big to explore. The tour buses are very good but to see the only way to really see the great views is to get to the edges on foot or on a bike

My Husband, Friends, and myself went here and spent almost the whole day! So much fun, so much to see, and lovely snack and adult-beverage areas throughout. The maps made it easy to navigate, and parking for the whole day was only like $10 (not too bad). I did Yoga on top of things, and other people stopped to take photos of me. Beautiful! Worth a day of vacation!!
