Vancouver Seawall, Vancouver

4.8
#2 of 7 in Nature in Vancouver
Running along the perimeter of Stanley Park, Vancouver Seawall stretches uninterruptedly along the water for almost 30 km (18 mi). Arguably the most popular feature within the park, the seawall provides city dwellers with an outdoor venue for jogging, cycling, and walking. The pathway features two distinct sections, one for pedestrians and the other for inline skaters and bikers. Follow the posted signs, use the seawall safely, and prepare to share the path with other recreationists, who come in droves on sunny days and weekends. Vancouver Seawall is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Vancouver Edition.

  • If you're heading to Vancouver, bring your sneakers and go for a walk along the seawall, you can easily make a day our of it. Take the time to visit each beaches along the way.  more »

  • Can walk or bike ride or skate the seawall. Keeps you out of traffic and can get to see a lot of the city. Some of the seawall was closed for renovation. Pretty views bring your cameras.  more »

  • Highly recommend renting a bike from Spokes Bicycle Rentals across the street and heading over for a few hour ride. The sites of the skyline are wonderful. The further around you go, the more peaceful and serene it becomes. Harbours, inlets, totem poles, bridges, gardens, and occasional whales in the distance bay. We wish we would have had more time to explore the interior of the park and pack a lunch. We only rode around the perimeter due to time constraints, but such a great experience all around. The statue of Lord Stanley was a nice little find as well.
  • It's been my backyard for a while, and after a year worth of runs, it's still as amazing as it was the first time I went. Just be sure to go early in the morning or in the evenings and avoid the weekends if you : - don't wanna stay stuck behind slow people if you're biking - don't like spending your time avoiding tourists left and right if you're running - wanna get the best out of the seawall and enjoy the peace and quiet of the ocean with a beautiful sunrise / sunset. But whatever you choose, if 10 km doesn't scare you, just go for it, you won't regret it.
  • Absolutely amazing! One of the nicest places to jog or bike in the entire world!! Absolutely stunning and easy enough to walk or bike at any age! So many things to see along the way. Stanley park and the seawall is one of my favorite places on earth!
  • Loved going to Stanly Park. It a very long walk around the sea wall. Renting a bike would be a great idea. The views are awesome
  • Walk around the sea with the beautiful city and water to one side and lush green Stanley part on the other. Long seawall great for biking and walking. Many pit stops for food and drink along the way. Lots to see one of the greatest walks of the city.
