    Rent a bike, including a bicycle built for two, or rollerblades and ride the park's 9km (5.5 mile) sea wall path.

    A must visit! Grand scale public park teaming with things to do. Aquarium, horse drawn carriage tour, Totem poles, hiking, biking, rose gardens...you could spend months exploring! It's stunning!

    Stanley Park is one of the biggest city park in the world, with the best beaches around including English Beach. Take a walk around the sea wall or visit the Vancouver Aquarium. This is the best park.

    Beautiful park. Loved the bike ride. Watched the show on the beach (young people's mating season) -- priceless. Took the ferry across to Granville Island too & enjoyed amazing food at the market.

    A beautiful park with lots of thoughtful ecology lessons posted at intervals along the trails. The animals are very acclimated to humans so they come up close, whether you like it or not!

    Open in 1888, the Stanley Park is the 3th largest urban park in north America (larger than Central Park !). Try the Seawall, enjoy the view on Vancouver’s downtown & the sea.

    The north third of the park has no trails from the beach up to the cliffs, so plan accordingly. Also, salmon flat bread at Prospect Point Cafe.
  • Alexa (@ladylexy) A.
    No trip to Vancouver is complete without a drive, bike or walk through Stanley Park. It will take your breath away and you'll never want to come home.

    Undeniably the city's greatest park, there is something for everyone here. Get away from the tourist hordes and check out the hiking trails.

    I can see why Vancouver residents would love this park, but for those visiting such as myself, it left much to be desired as far as activities and attractions go.
  • Vancouver Convention Centre
    Stanley Park is a walker’s paradise in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Take a scenic walk along the seawall, enjoy the underwater wonders of the Vancouver Aquarium or catch a sunset at Third Beach.

    Get off the roads and take the dirt paths, especially at the North of the Park: they are quiet places full of greeneries.
