We took a bus tour of Vancouver which included Stanley Park. If we had more days visiting the city we would definitely go back to take some of the walking trails there. Beautiful rain forest and access to boating. Beautiful totem poles. A must see while visiting Vancouver, BC.

We rented bikes from Rio Bicycle hire for around $25CAD for 4 hrs. This was a great way to get around the park. It was so much fun.

This park is huge. So many things to see and do. Ride or walk the sea wall. View the totem poles. Lion Bridge. Lighthouse. 9pm cannon. Beautiful lush green (spring) a rose garden in June. Several venues to eat or drink. Looking at reviews, I wasn't a big fan, but having been there now I need to say this place... More

Stanley Park is a must see while in Vancouver. I highly recommend renting bicycles up the street (Georgia and Denman, free parking is also offered there) so you don't have to park inside the park, pay, and then walk out of the park to get bikes. Once you get them, navigating the bike path throughout the park is extremely easy... More

Stanley Park is located on the tip of the Vancouver Peninsula and is a wonderful play area for locals and tourists alike. With extensive walking and cycle trails, it is great to explore in good weather or bad. There are many points of interest including the aquarium, totem poles, etc. There are many places to seek refreshment, from fast food... More

If it's sunny in Vancouver, run to Stanley Park. Walking, riding a bicicle, going to the beach, or just relaxing, Stanley Park is the perfect place to go. Have a map with you, this place is huge.

This is a must go to in Vancouver. Take the trails and explore or walk the sea wall all the way around. Some terrific sights and history. Lion Gate bridge is also a must see. Super for good walkers or take the horsedrawn ride. (not cheap)
