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.

Hardly to describe what there is all to do & see in detail- you should anyhow visit, make sure to relax on one of the beaches, to visit the Aquarium and to go for a bike tour!

A day of walking in the park around both sea wall and Beaver lake. Well worth the visit and fine on foot of you'd rather not bike

What a wonderful place to get lost in. Lovely bike trails and hiking trails throughout the whole park. Only negative I have was it was extremely busy with tourists who seemed to not have any clue of what was going on around them!

When we visited the park we rented bikes and cycled around which I really think is the best way to explore the park! The loop along the coast with plenty of sight is terrific but if you cycle on some of the inner parths in...More

Great spot to enjoy a biking adventure. Bike path surrounding park is well marked and allows views of many great Vancouver sites.

This park honestly needs no review, it speaks for itself. I have never seen a more beautiful and expansive public park with so much to do. We took a trolley tour so we were able to see a lot of the park and learn about...More

I recommend renting a bike just outside the park and riding around/through the park stopping everywhere you want. Bring a picnic and enjoy the views. You can't come to Vancouver and not spend some time here.

Lovely greenery everywhere - dined at the Pavillon which felt like we were in a tree house! Yummy burgers - gardens are amazing!

Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up
close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy
expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views,
beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical
getaway spot for friends and families, especially as
it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its
best equestrian outlets.

do something different and explore the "inner" park. You are never too far away from "civilisation". Well defined paths that few people tread. Some interesting sights especially from a nature point of view.

There are no lockers unless you potentially go to pool area but I doubt they would fit anything as big as common luggage. Best way to see park is via bicycle!
