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.

We had the fortunate pleasure of experiencing the park when it was snowing, which is not a common event in downtown Vancouver (from what the locals told me), and it was magical. We came back the next day which was chilly and sunny and did a slow drive around the park. Some of the snow was still on the ground... More

Stanley Park is a must! It doesn't matter how long you're visiting, Stanley park is a quick bus drive or even a walk away. You can walk, run, cycle or skate your way around, taking in the impressive parkland hidden away is such a busy city. Don't forget to stop off at one of beaches that can be found along... More

Hired a couple of bikes and off we went. The whole area is around 10km which is very doable on a bike. Took us around 3 hours. Only left as the weather was scorching and we had no sun cream. Bikes ride on a separate path to walkers so no problem with running anyone over. Great views all around. Would... More

We traveled to Stanley Park in November, although it was cold you could see how huge and wonderful the park really is. I would recommend traveling in the summer when the weather is great!

Stanley Park is an amazingly huge green space. Besides the fantastic seawall.and beaches and views of the city, there are so many trails to explore away from the water . We try to explore a different corner when we come but always habe to stop at third or second beach too. The salmon burgers are delicious.

Take in Beautiful views of the City of Vancouver as you stroll along the meandering sidewalks in the Park. Stroll the Park or take a hop on hop off narrated bus tour. Don't miss Totem Pole Park and the adorable lighthouse along the seaside path. If you have extra time visit the Vancouver Zoo within the park and visit the... More

We walked up to and through Stanley Park from downtown (past the Lost Lake) and managed to miss the Seawall completely, but still enjoyed it very much. In particular I found Beaver Lake to be awe-inspiring. I guess most people stick to the track around the park, but if you have time, cut through and you'll be rewarded.

We spent a day riding around and through Stanley park on our trip to Canada in July 2016 and had a great time. It is a lovely area and riding around the sea wall is a great way to spend time.

Either you see a family of otters or you can take your bike and enjoy the beautiful view of the sea, the city and the park. You definitely need a camera with you, the sights are insane. Inside the park there are some cool paths to walk around the forest
