Stanley Park, Vancouver

Bike, hike, swim, and explore at Stanley Park, Vancouver's beloved recreational area. In addition to its thick forests, the historical park features large swathes of wetlands and seashores, hugely popular with nature lovers and impassioned trekkers. Giant trees hundreds of years old provide plenty of fresh air to Vancouver's downtown, while a lengthy network of paved and unpaved trails let you connect with nature and learn about the local ecology. Landscaped flower gardens serve as idyllic backdrops for snapping a few photos, and several eateries offer both indoor and alfresco dining within the park's grounds. A visit to Stanley Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Vancouver trip itinerary maker website to plot your vacation.

  • Stanley Park was great! Loved the 9 o'clock gun. Also the aquarium was great for the kids. Fun way to be on the water great for both most of the time. Get out and do something on the water, it is good for the soul. Also, Saint Nicklaus is the patron saint of sailors #nice list...🎅🤙
  • Very peaceful and beautiful place. Amazing view of downtown skyline. Cycling on seawall is very fun activity. Amazing views of the city, mountains and lions gate bridge. Perfect for wedding proposals and photo shoots. Very busy during summer
  • A must-see attraction in Vancouver. Definitely do the full circle around the park on a bicycle! Spectacular views of the Lion's Gate Bridge, downtown Vancouver, and the surrounding mountains and ocean. Surely go see the Vancouver Aquarium for a great experience. Extremely happening crowd, and just beware that you won't wanna go back home from here! :)
  • Incredible urban park! Renting a bike is cheap and convenient, and the bike path is one-way and mostly separated from pedestrians so it is fun, safe, and easy. The views vary as you go and all are beautiful. So easy to get here and you can explore as much or as little as you want. Even though there are a ton of people, you can enjoy it all.
  • A very beautiful and massive park. We rented bikes from the vicinity and rode around the whole park. Lots of opportunities to take some excellent pictures with beautiful views. Also took the hop on- hop off bus and it goes right through the park and you can see lots of beautiful views. will definitely go ride through this park again.
