Stanley Park, Vancouver

Must see · Park · Nature / Park
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
