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.

Stanley park is very large, so we opted to rent bikes and ride around the park, would definitely recommend that option. We were able to complete the outside loop of the park in just over an hour, take in all the beautiful sites along the coast.

My family and I have rented bicycles for the five of us, and even though my lil sis was 8 years old she managed to cycle all the way around the lake, and enjoyed the ride a lot. We had walked through the park the day before and it was also a great experience. It's clean and beautiful!

One of the more beautiful settings in this part of the world. Even in the dead of winter with unseasonal snow in January, this was a beautiful walk and place to explore on the edge of Vancouver. This is a must-see no matter what the season. As a horticultural enthusiast, I was completely impressed by this gorgeous park.

A great walk, beautiful things to do and see. If you are on foot- head into English Bay and treat yourself to a nice lunch, dinner or breakfast on Denman Street. My personal favorite is Legendary Noodle House.

We started walking around the sea wall then walked into the centre. It was a great way to spend the afternoon.

This park is huge, we went durning the summer and rented a couple cruiser bikes which was so much fun. Time permitting at least go for a walk on the seawall you won't be disappointed :)

The park is so big, can plan one day activity there. Adults and kids will all enjoy the beach, sand and views.

Love Stanley Park. Brilliant way to spend a day. Lovely walk along the sea walls and lots of walking and biking trails. Visit the totem poles or Vancouver Aquarium. There is a hop on hop off trolley bus that does a route around the park if needed.

If you only do one thing in Vancouver, make it a ride and walk around the Seawall and a visit to Stanley Park. It's the perfect way to see water, city and mountain views while animal watching (it's the first place we saw squirrels and those Canadian seagulls and geese are huge!). We visited the aquarium, which is great for... More
