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.

If you love to spend time in nature, that's the place. You can walk or hire bike (regular or electric) near sea-plane boarding port. Parking is around $7 for full day and you can park anywhere (legal parking place) inside Stanley park. Its good to hire bike and you can spend 2-3 hrs easily while riding coastal side path, with...

Great location in Vancouver. Huge space. I love the parking set-up. You pay once but can move around to different parking lots within the park. Roads have a lot of potholes though right now.

The new part of the aquarium is incredible--an excellant opportunity for ALL AGES to view/understand the oceans of our planet ! --including several "tanks " of Jelly fish. The Display of Canada's Arctic was very good. The outside area of the Aquarium with the tank for larger fish , quiet at this time of year ; though the Park is... More

Amazing walks, cycles and lots of outdoor activity and it was on our doorstep! The circular walk along by the sea is about 9 KM and well worth the effort. It is very well organised with separate walking and cycling paths and the cycling path is one-way for safety. Bikes to rent everywhere with helmets!

No better place for photo ops in this gem of a city. Love Stanley Park, love the seawall, love everything about the surrounding area. So much beauty, it is a must see if you are a tourist, and even if you live in Vancouver!

We walked for a mile along the seawall. Lots of people walking and bike riders. It was difficult to find a parking space on Sunday afternoon. Parking costs $3.00 per hour.

Beautiful park with stunning scenery. It offers bike and footpaths for the fitness people. We hired bikes before the park at a place called Spokes on Denman St. We hired two bikes for 2 hours, which worked out about £20. But I haven't rode a bike for 20yrs so the 6km around the park on safe cycle lanes was excellent.... More

This park is huge and beautiful. Easy access from downtown, I highly recommend renting bikes for the day and exploring this park. Can cover more ground than walking, and you don't have to pay exorbitant parking fees when you make multiple stops - which you will. There are multiple beaches, easy hiking trails, handful of places to stop for snacks,... More
