About
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 beautiful at any time of the year, I highly recommend a visit. We were there in November, so it was a little damp and cold, but the fall colors and walk along the waterfront were awesome!

We woke up early and walked from the hotel to the park. It is a few miles to the park and you could spend the day walking the park itself. We gave it a few hours and enjoyed the scenery and stops along the way.

It had been many years since I had been here. I forgot how truly fantastic and amazing the park is. There is so much to do. We went to the aquarium, the beach, rode the train, saw the hollow tree, the seawall, the totem poles, several gardens, etc. My daughter hates cities and loved Vancouver because of Stanley Park, where you are in the city, but in nature.

The best way to see the Island is to actually walk around the entire Island. Stop every so often and take in the view and what's going on from ships sailing past to the small planes taking off/landing in the bay.

It's better than riding round on bikes as some times they're so many that it's a nightmare trying to avoid other cyclists who some of them have not got a clue how to ride/behave on the cycles. So much more relaxing walking.

Take time out to stop and have a drink in the Tea House, well worth it.

Only negative thing is the rest rooms, to the best.

Stanley park was across our hotel and we experienced few days exploring this beautiful park. We rented bicycles and rode the 20 miles around the park and the views are breathtaking. The are so many colorful flowers in the park and if you are visiting Vancouver you must experience visiting this amazing park.

Lovely park to take in the large trees, totem poles, Lions Gate Bridge, the Lighthouse, and small gift/snack shop. We had a car and it was a quiet day in the park, so it took no time at all to see it all, but lots of walking and bike paths as well.
