A nature education centre along the Stanley Park trail. It's worth a visit. They do a lot of conservation work and community education, such as preserving the habitat of bats in the urban setting. :)

Regarding the Lost Lagoon area itself: This is one of my regular spots as a local where there is so much going on here with all the variety of urban wildlife. You are usually likely to see the raccoons, sometimes a mother one with babies...More

The lagoon had many lovely swans and other birds when we passed by and stopped to admire the beauty of nature in the city. It is easy to find, close by the entrance to Stanley Park. Very relaxing spot!

We visited Lost Lagoon as the start of a bicycle tour of Stanley park. It is great to see the swans and the serenity of the lake. A small wonder this area could be preserved in a city so keen to develop.

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.
