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.

Great views, great walks, great picture opportunities. The park is huge that even when driving through it, it took a while. I love the Totem Poles but everything there was gorgeous!

Summer and spring are best for viewing the park but winter coats Stanley Park with a special patina.

We spent quite a lot of time walking around the park. There are well-laid out paths around and through it, restaurants and wonderful views looking back to Vancouver itself. It's a long walk from the city but there is a regular bus service which takes...More

It's hard to imagine having such a vast and beautiful park in the middle of the city. Stanley Park is full of hidden places and gems alongside more famous attractions such as the Vancouver Aquarium and Totem Poles. I come here every single week and...More

Wonderful to have such a large greenspace in the heart of the city. We enjoyed adventuring around the park on a cold snow day.

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.

Lots of walking and if the weather is suitable, Stanley Park is fantastic for cycling. Great souvenir shop near the totems as well if you are into gifts. Plenty of places for amazing photography so take a camera.

do something different and explore the "inner" park. You are never too far away from "civilisation". Well defined paths that few people tread. Some interesting sights especially from a nature point of view.

There are no lockers unless you potentially go to pool area but I doubt they would fit anything as big as common luggage. Best way to see park is via bicycle!
