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

    So many great things to do - walk/bike/rollerblade the Sea Wall. Hike the trails. Lie on the beach. Go swimming. Pitch & putt. Horse carriages. Playground. Aquarium. Bring a camera! #thisisvancouver

    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!
  • Neil B.
    One of the most amazing parks you'll come across. Walk or bike all around the perimeter or explore some of the many trails in the interior

    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.

    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.

    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.
