Walk around Stanley Park

Not to be missed. A great experience walking around this beautiful park with the gardens and wildlife, especially enjoyed the squirells. The bistro is also good value.

Not so good on a rainy day. You can be lucky to see some local resident animals. Cherry blossom is pretty in late March / early April. There some other attraction there - Science Museum and the Aquarium

Stanley Park is a beautiful park in downtown Vancouver. It is a must visit. There is a nice area to look at totem poles. We took bikes around the (one way) bike path that circles the park.

It is a nice park but not very impressed. It can be very crowed at times and you might see people littering and doing stupid things.

We visited one the Stanley park bar and grill for drinks after exploring the park. I recommend spending a lot of time wondering and seeing the great sights and views of the city.

Huge and beautiful park with lots of fun. Perfect for a nice walk and picnic in the forest, for swimming in the delightful beaches, walking and biking in the seawall. Amazing views of the water, mountains, Lions Gate Bridge.

This is a must see when visiting this beautiful city. It's worth driving through it as well as walking and cycling it. Lots of points of interest throughout the park. Recommend to go early before the tourists arrive.

We used the park a couple of times while in Vancouver. Firstly we explored the interior areas on foot (Beaver lake and the forest trails) and then we hired bikes and cycled around the seawall section.
