Stanley Park, Vancouver

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.

  • Gorgeous views of the city. Off the main (paved) path looked inviting but we didnt have the right tores. Bike path gets a little crowded but just be vigilant when riding. Will definitely return!  more »
  • Our family of four cycled around the whole park in less than 1.5 hours, at a leisurely pace. A beautiful park connecting different regions of Vancouver. Lots of good photo opportunities too.  more »

  • The view from the park is awesome. Be it the city / downtown view or the waterfront or the park. It is a treat to walk around the park. There is a dedicated walk and jog lane. There is a dedicated cycling and skating lane. The area is calm, but you will see a lot of people enjoying the nature and having fun.
