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 reviews
I walked many trails through the park and rented a bike for a leisurely ride around the seawall. Stanley Park is an urban oasis that is obviously well used and loved and maintained very well as far...

Vow, there's like a flower show, so beautiful. Walking along the different flower bed, smell the freshness & enjoying the sunshine. It's really a good place to relax. You can find the Kids enjoy running about & playing around. There's picnic tables for your convenience. You can ride a bike around too.
Nice place for biking, jogging or just walking, with family or alone. Rose garden pavilion is very beautiful. Rose garden pavilion is the best place to take pictures. A lot of wonderful flowers. There is also a section near the cliff big rock on one side and the other side is the ocean. It is very beautiful to take more pictures.
Stanley Park really has the best scenery in Vancouver and quite spacious. It’s well kept and had a lot of things to check out especially as a tourist. It was quite quiet during the time I went (around 6pm). There is a lot of walking to get around however, it’s worth the long walks for these amazing views of nature. There are a lot of paid parking spots around the area and the fee isn’t too bad for a short 1 or 2 hr visit. I highly recommend visiting Stanley Park!
Pleasant place to take a walk! I enjoyed watching the wildlife including colourful wood ducks and other small birds that I'm not sure the species of~ also many pathways to take that bring you through gardens, playgrounds, the seawall, tennis courts, and the lost lagoon! Just be mindful of your step as there can be goose droppings as some big groups of them can be waddling around :) keep to the right on paths to give space to joggers and cyclists if you are taking a relaxed pace for a walk 😁
This place is a really fun place to go to since it has a good view of the Vancouver Harbour, North Vancouver and the tall buildings in Downtown Vancouver. I really like this place because it’s a big park and you can choose where you want to walk, either on the dike (around the border of Stanley Park) or walk inside Stanley Park which is where the trees grass and other things are. Another very famous part about Stanley Park is the Vancouver Aquarium which is a fun place to go to since you can see a lot of sea animals and other cool things there.
