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.

This is 1100 square miles of beautiful greenery: there is a rose garden, an aquarium, trails, totem poles, and much much more. You can walk the sea wall, it's an incredible place not to be missed if in Vancouver!

We spent one evening in Stanley Park. The area was crowded being weekend. The visit was memorable as weather was favorable. The location and trail is worth spending time.

This green oasis in a bustling city is full of things to do, things to eat and experiences to have. There is a winding road, in most places one way, hiking trails, beaches, playground equipment, ice cream shops, restaurants and much more. The water is...More

This is my favorite place in Vancouver. Great bike, jog or walk along the sea wall. Also so many cool things to discover around the interior. Great trails through old growth forest, birds chirping, ferns and plants growing wild, just beautiful. There's a lawn bowling...More

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.

Thoughts on the Stanley Park train? Making a quick stop in the Park and am wondering if the train is a good way to appreciate small cross-section of park. Two preteen kids in tow.

I didn't even know there was a train. I rented a bike and got by just fine. The roads are so organized for bikes, skaters, and pedestrians. Just watch out for those who are walking their pets on the bike routes because they... More

I have never been to Vancouver. I am planning a ski trip at the end of this month in Whistler. I am considering possibly spending a day or two in Vancouver. Would you recommend the park at this time of year and if so what is there to do there.

It had snowed in Vancouver when we were there so there was still a lot of snow on the ground. If you like hiking, that's about all there is to do at Stanley Park, apart from the aquarium.
how do you get here form the sea bus coming form N Van

I bought a ticket for the trolley which boards in front of the Sheraton Wall. I recommend the 2-day ticket because of the off/on boarding availability.
