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.

Lovely walk

A wonderful park, with a wide range of walks, bike rides and sights to see. Even in winter it was lovely to walk around and take in the beauty of Vancouver.

With the option to walk or ride around Stanley park there are ways to see as much of it as you can. Walking through the park off of the seawall walk lets you discover hidden areas without the people around and gives a great bit of fresh air in a big city.

You can do as much or as little as you want here. Just enjoy the scenery or rent a bike and cycle around this gem. Eat a meal at the prospect point restaurant. The views are unbelievable

I really enjoyed walking around the park and seeing the statues. Unfortunately the polar bear enclosure is no longer in use, but that's also a good thing.

Stanley Park is a great place to walk or cycle around and get a real taste for the city. It also houses several attractions, some free others at a cost.

I love the bike path along the entire shoreline of Stanly Park. Its in great shape and offers terrific views at every turn! From beaches to bridges, to Inukshuks built in the strangest places. Wonderful views of the sunset if you time it just right!

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Canada. We hired bikes for the day and took a leisurely cycle around the park. There is a ring route around the outer edge (sea wall) of the park. The path is clearly separated. One side for pedestrians and one side for bikes and it is a one way system.... More

We visited Stanley Park both during the day and night. Daytime we took the #19 bus from the city to the park. Easy to use but you must have the correct fare to board. We looked it up on the internet as our hotel had free wifi in the lobby. Daytime we visited the acquarium. A lot to see, not... More

Stanley Park is Vancouver's largest park, and located in the 'middle' of the metro area. It is surrounded by a 10 km seawall that locals run, walk and bike. It is a free 'tour' of the North Shore mountains, Burrard inlet, the Lions Gate Bridge, English Bay and the inner harbour.
