Vancouver Seawall, Vancouver

4.8
#1 of 383 in Trails in Canada
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.

  • So many benefits to spending an hour or two on the Seawall around Stanley Park! The circumnavigation is exactly 10km (6 miles). As I was working on increasing my running distance this autumn, I incorp...  more »
  • The Vancouver Seawall is 28 kilometers long and extends from Vancouver Convention Centre to the Park of Spanish Banks. Can be covered both on foot and by bike or you can jog, anyway you can admire landmarks such as Science World, along the beautiful beaches (like Kitsilano Beach, Sunset Beach and English Bay) and feel part of this wonderful town.

  • My family is visiting Vancouver so we decided to walk along the seawall and check it out. As a pedestrian, I wasn't too impressed. Maybe it looks better when the tide is in, or when it's not too hazy from the smokey wild fires and you can see a clear blue sky or the Vancouver skyline. We walked about 3 miles and didn't see much other than a lot of bike riders. So, the seawall might be great for bikes but not so much for walkers.
  • It is one of my favorite walks (long walks) in Vancouver. The sea wall its all border of Stanley Park, and if you take the time to walk it you will see beautiful highlights, take a break and do picnic during your way and relax. If you walk the sea wall you shoyld keep your eyes open! Because you will be surrounded by beautiful wild life such as Harbour Seals, Royal Eagles and if is your lucky day maybe a whale that is chilling around (it happens one or 2 times per year). So enjoy the sea wall!!!!
  • Amazing views and awesome bike path. My wife and I loved it. Had a hard time not taking a bunch of pics.
  • Great place to walk, run or bike. The view is beautiful. Great spot for photographers.
  • Beautiful to walk run bike basically any mode of transportation. Does get quite busy tho so be prepared for some slow traffic.
