Vancouver Seawall, Vancouver

#2 of 7 in Nature in Vancouver
Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
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 Edition.

  • We had a great family bike ride along the Seawall! Loved the views, the ocean and even got to see a racoon.  more »
  • My wife and I walked leisurely by the Seawall on a Wednesday afternoon. The weather was good at that time of the day. Not many people walking by so the atmosphere is calm and relaxing. I walked for...  more »
  • A must see when in Vancouver. It is a beautiful place to walk or bike along the seawall. We did see a seal which made my wife even happier.  more »

  • Beautiful. Welcoming. Serenity personified. Clean. Quiet. Great for a lover's stroll or indeed any kind of stroll. I estimate a 1KM walk if you stick to the wall (path) but it's probably more. Some nice little cafΓ© around the quays and town is a stone's throw away so there is the usual variety of mall and shops and all of the activities that these offer. There's also a casino. I didn't go in as it looked really seedy - that said, it did seem to attract a fairly hefty crowd. Just across the road are a number of places where you can book sea/ocean tours that take you to unbelievably beautiful places to do whale watching and to see sea lions and all manner of ocean life. Definitely worth booking a trip. Massively, massively recommended πŸ‘πŸΏ πŸ‘πŸΏ πŸ‘πŸΏ πŸ‘πŸΏ πŸ‘πŸΏ πŸ‘πŸΏ πŸ‘πŸΏ πŸ‘πŸΏ
  • Vancouver is a beautiful city. Having the opportunity to see the city from the seawall is amazing. The walk is beautiful. Go at your own pace and enjoy the atmosphere. You will meet people rollerblading, jogging, biking, walking pets... Room for everyone.
  • I highly recommend renting a bicycle from a nearby rental store and biking around the Seawall. That's what I did and you can take in all the amazing views while at the same time moving quickly around Stanley Park. The views and sights are extremely beautiful. You go underneath the Lions Gate Bridge, and you can see the towers of Vancouver on the other side. Also, you pass by many beautiful beaches. But seriously, biking around the Seawall is the best way to take in all the beauty of the Vancouver Seawall, and this is a must-do activity while visiting Vancouver!
  • One of the best places to spend hours catching Vancouver's best side. Great for walks, a run, or just getting outside. Often under utilized it really is a way to capture some incredible vistas and scenes and see the beauty Vancouver has to offer on foot.
  • Evidently one of the most iconic spots in all of Vancouver. Amazing in the summertime and just as nice to walk on in the Autumn, at least when its not raining. Lot's of families, and bicyclists along the trail with a spectacular view of the city and surrounding landscape.
