It's just a statue so it's not worth going out of the way to see it... however, the park is really popular so you'll probably end up walking by it at some point. My husband and I were on a mini vacation and ended up...More

This statue reminds me of the mermaid in Singapore and Copenhagen. It is located off the Vancouver Seawall in the Burrard Inlet. Can miss it if you rush pass. Basically it is a nice statue.

One of many interesting sights a walk around Stanley Park has to offer. While not worth a trip on it's own, can be bundled with local attractions such as the Totem Poles, Lighthouse, 9 o'clock gun, etc. While some say it is a copy of...More

You will see this statue if you walk along the sea wall or take a horse and carriage ride. The girl in a wetsuit is visible at low tide and is nearly covered at high tide.

Strangely reminiscent of the 'Little Mermaid' the bronze statue on this rock by the Seawall walkway is well loved, especially by the local bird population who have daubed her in streets of white. Visitors stop for a photograph and fishermen try their luck in the...More

Whimsical "copy" of the Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen. Interesting to observe the change fro hour-to-hour and the tide ebbs and flows.

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.
