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.

You might even encounter a seal if you look closely. Great quiet place for a walk, but pay attention to bikes and runners!

We took the ~2 hour ride (stopping frequently to take pictures) around the park on the awesome path!

First thing, be there in the morning. The parks jam a little bit around. After trying to figure the parking and the fees, enjoy the park! I still not sure if the parking fees are for all the parks or just a specific lot. There...More

Great beaches, restaurants, walks, a rose garden and a fantastic vista of Vancouver city - all to be found in Stanley Park - a park bigger the New York city's Central Park. If you're visiting Vancouver this is a must visit.

Views were great. Keep in mind it was extremely crowded on a weekday morning and you're constantly dodging people and bikes.

We walked around the entire park following the waterfront. The scenery was beautiful with lots of variations. We saw birds, interesting rock formations, wide ocean views and serene inner waterway. Loved it.

This park on the edge of Vancouver is a wonderful place to visit. It is easily accessible and has some lovely walks and activities to take part in. You will find the Aquarium in the park and this is well worth a visit

We rented bikes and rode around the seawall perimeter of the park-which was an absolute delight! Trails (most for walking, many for bikes/skates) criss-cross this very large park. Many family-friendly activities available (aquarium, playgrounds, swimming beaches and pool), gorgeous gardens. Also went to evening theater...More

Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up
close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy
expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views,
beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical
getaway spot for friends and families, especially as
it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its
best equestrian outlets.

Organise a taxi to pick you up. I never felt unsafe in Vancouver and I wandered around alone a bit . I wasn't in the park after dark though.

We just had young adults from Germany and we took them up to Lynn Canyon and the suspension bridge there (smaller but free and just as impressive hikes). We then went on to Stanley Park where you can walk the sea wall... More

I didn't even know there was a train. I rented a bike and got by just fine. The roads are so organized for bikes, skaters, and pedestrians. Just watch out for those who are walking their pets on the bike routes because they... More
