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.

“Gorgeous even on a cloudy day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We did the park extension of the HOHO bus, which lasted at least 45 minutes. Our driver/guide was excellent, full of information and history. We stopped at several places - totem poles, prospect point, rose garden, view of the bridge - such a lovely park. The views along the seawall were beautiful, though it was too cloudy to see much of the mountains. I just wish we could have done it by bike and spent more time, but our guys knees prevented doing that! I loved that the locals really seem to utilize the park - it was full of joggers, bikers and such.

“Tranquil area close to city centre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

One of the highlights of Vancouver - a large green space on the edge of the city centre, on the waterfront, overlooking the mountains. Folk of all ages and nationalities enjoying their free time here - various routes to walk, jog, cycle and roller blade. Singles, couples, families, people with prams, dog walkers, etc - something for everyone ... feels very safe and well maintained. For fresh air and a change of pace, head to Stanley Park where there's load to see and do.
