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.

“Beautiful,lush scenery with view of cityscape and harbor”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Our time of Stanley Park was typified by both the audio horse-drawn group carriage tour and the SeaWalk alongside the harbor. Not only did we get more appreciation of the natural scenery and landmarks clustered around Stanley Park, but we also enjoyed viewing the harbor and downtown cityscape of Vancouver across the bay.

“Stanley Park”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Stanley Park is a great place to spend the day in Vancouver (apart from Grouse Mountain). You can get buses there if you don't own a car but there are roads and car parking facilities. There is so much to do, but I would recommend the Aquarium. The shows are amazing and you should see the dolphins do tricks! We spent lots of time at the Aquarium and it was very enjoyable. I didn't do the horse drawn tours but still would recommend. I also recommend the whole park as it us a great place to spend time and there is so much to see and do. Also the Hollow Tree is amazing. There is so much so I can't put it into the whole review!
Thank you Vancouver for providing Stanley Park!

“Nice, but that is all.......”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

We went with a hop-on/hop-off bus and spent about an hour touring the Park. It is lovely, but does not have any of the charm of the parks in cities like New York or Chicago. A good place to get outdoors, as many in Vancouver live in apartments.

“Rent a bike, and go around the park”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Bring a bathing suit as the temptation is great to go for a swim, and if the Pacific does not tempt you, we had a great swimming pool at the end of the park
