Attractions abound in this massive downtown park, a veritable rain forest within a metropolis. To name just a few of the activities and attractions: the Children's Farmyard, Miniature Railway, tennis courts, beaches, children's water park, heated ocean side swimming pool, the Theater Under the Stars, the Vancouver Aquarium, and the 10.5-km perimeter Seawall, which is packed with joggers, walkers, and rollerbladers. Once a military reserve, the park became one of the city's premier attractions by action of the city's first council.
If you are going to Vancouver and love music, check out who is playing at the theater in Stanley Park, there is a little bar/food at the top of the hill where you can get food and drinks (or bring your own) and hang out on the lawn and listen to the concert for free! Or, you can pay the ticket and not bring any food and drink in with you.. I thought it was a cool venue either way.
Stanley Park is the Vancouver equivalent to Central Park here in New York City. It gives sanity to a city of 2 million people while providing something for everyone to do.
I enjoyed walking along the sea wall, sitting on the logs in English Bay, and renting a bicycle and riding along the wonderful bike paths and trails.
All in all -- just a great, relaxing place to hang out!
New York has Central park Vancouver has Staley park. Although its hard to compare both parks they both offer the same thing. A quick getaway from the city, witch is only a light jog way. Stanley park was a free tram ride that covers the entire park in about 45 min. I suggest you park you car, take the tram and make a few stops. With all the attractions in the park you might have to set a whole day aside just to cover it all.
This has to be one of the most beautiful parks there is...ANYWHERE. I am not a big nature person at all, but this gigantic park took my breath away. If you ever visit Vancouver this is a place that you must see. It is right by the water, and gives you one of the best views of Vancouver.
I'm never a park goer but my friends from Vancouver insisted that I should pay a visit. Informative signs, sufficient parking lots, refreshing atmosphere, brillant sunset view at the Prospect Point, friendly locals...I will come back to Vancouver just because of this place!
An EcoWalk is a fun and informative walk through Vancouver�s world class Stanley Park, a 1,000 acre (402 hectare) nature preserve. The friendly guides give interesting information on the unique trees, plants, birds and animals as well as on the rich aboriginal First Nations culture and legends of the park. The walking pace is medium, taking 3 hours to complete and covering 8 kilometers, (5 miles) of relatively flat paved and graveled trails over selected seawall and forest paths. This walk is suitable for the whole family, including active seniors. Both visitors and residents of Vancouver who take the Stanley Park EcoWalk just love it; it sparks or renews their interest in the aboriginal First Nations culture and Canada�s unique West Coast ecology.
Stanley Park is an amazing place. Trails to wander through, the Sea Wall for jogging, the Zoo for animal lovers, and of course the Aquarium, with it's fantastic collection of sea life and exhibits. You can get lost in the sights and sounds of the Beluga Wales and outside you have the many marvellous gardens...This is one of my favorite places to be. Everywhere you look you have a view of mountains, oceans and colour. Breath taking!
A must see if you are visiting Vancouver. The whole city is quite green considering it's such a big city. But Stanley Park is the jewel in the crown. Expect to spend an entire day here, walking, visiting the Aquarium, just sitting on a bench.
