We used the Hop On Hop Off Bus to get to Stanley Park for two of the days we were in Vancouver. We took our time taking lots of photos starting from the harbour view, the totem poles and Lions Gate Bridge. We loved this park in winter with the snow, so very pretty.

There are so many places to go at Stanley park, I highly suggest you get yourself a map and a friend, take lots of water and food, then explore! People watching is a great activity but certinly not the only one. The aquarium is located in the park and well as a number of beachs that are just waiting to... More

Stanley Park, named after Lord Stanley (*****) can be found on the northwestern tip of the CBD of Vancouver, the sea wall runs right around the perimeter of the park for 9km, giving spectacular views of the city. The whole nothern tip of the park contains the only example of old growth forest left in Vancouver. Closer to the park's... More

It reminds me the Central Park. Very good place for either walking or jogging. You can have a beautiful view of downtown on your way.

Run around Stanley Park in the morning and you won't be disappointed. It is roughly 6-8 miles around the perimeter "sea wall" and depending your starting point. I started near the convention center so I think it was closer to 8 miles. Definitely try some of the inland trails too.

We walked around the park on seawall for about 3 km and then we headed inland through the tall trees and lakes. It was truly magical and we loved it.

Very large park. All the 'attractions" are spaced although still walkable. Beautiful views, nature, and nature trails. Can be used as "country' getaway if tired of the business of the city life. If tourist perhaps not a good idea to plan a whole day around Stanley park, especially if you wan to sight see. Food places are pricey.

Stanley is a big park situated on a peninsular jutting out from, and to the west of, downtown Vancouver. In fact the park is so big there are patches of forests that make you feel like you are way out in the middle of nowhere, well away from the big city. The Vancouver Aquarium is situated here, as is a... More
