North America's third-largest park draws eight million visitors per year, many of whom may skate or walk past you on the Seawall, a scenic, 5.5-mile path running along the water on the park's perimeter. It's just one of many trails among the park's 1,000 acres, which also house an aquarium, nature center and other recreational facilities.

One of my favorite places in Vancouver. It's so close to downtown but still quiet. I rode a bike around the park which was just amazing. So many beautiful but different views! Only negative thing is that it's quite busy. But you can still find some places where you're gonna be alone. :)

The park is worth committing a few hours (or more!) of your time. I walked the seawall loop as a single woman on a Monday afternoon and felt no safety issues. Walkers and cyclists were respectful of others on the paths. It was a beautiful way to spend an afternoon.

It is easy to drive, walk, run or bike around the island. There are attractions and sports fields including the Totem Poles, Siwash Rock and Aquarium. It is a short distance from many hotels and restaurants close to the park.

I visited stanley park on a cold, rainy winter day but it was the best idea ever! The smell of the fresh rain and trees filled the air and it was quiet so I was not bothered by tons of tourists or locals running through the park.

If the weather is nice then please go to this park. You can walk, jog, bike around the sea-wall as most people call it. There are several restaurants, an aquarium, good viewing areas and even a small beach within the park. If you drive around, you can decide where to visit, but I personally recommend the experience of burning calories.

Spent some time visiting this remarkable urban park during my stay in Vancouver. In spite of cold and gray February weather, the views were lovely. I enjoyed seeing the First Nations' totem poles and the huge trees.

This park was beautiful. I wish I had more than 4 hours worth of time to really get to explore it. Also, if the weather wasn't so bad it would have been nice to rent a bike. If going during the winter make sure to layer up properly. Specially if you are from a country with a warmer climate. I... More

I am always amazed at the foresight of Vancouver's founders in setting aside this huge tract of land for a park. It is so close to the city but a totally different, peaceful environment. This time the sea wall was closed around Lions Gate bridge, but my husband and I were still able to do a lot of walking and... More

I enjoyed two great runs around the Seawall during our stay. The Westin Bayshore had free bikes which we used to cruise around and through the Park. A true Oasis in the middle of Vancouver . Fantastic views while surrounded by the smell of wet cedar and wildlife everywhere.

We took the horse drawn tour of the park, and really enjoyed the beautiful setting. Afterwords we got out and walked around a little bit. Only downside is we couldn't find a good place to eat
