- Stanley ParkOct 18, 2013
Take a deep breath right inside the city of Vancouver and stretch your legs on a shoreline walk, woodsy hike or lazy cycling trip through Stanley Park. Great restaurants nearby the water and interesting attractions make it worth a detour, too. Or go just for the postcard-worthy scenic shots you could post on Gogobot!

Established in 1888 this world renowned park is surrounded by the ocean yet overlooks the shores of west Vancouver. Large old growth fir trees provide a quiet haven for guests of the park and provide homes for numerous species of birds, butterflies plus aquatic animals. Walking and biking trails abound throughout the park yet you are minutes from the downtown core and excellent restaurants

Stanley Park is huge! I recommend renting a bike and going around the place. You'll get a great view of the ocean and mountains. Plus, if you bike around the park it will take you at least twenty minutes depending on how crowded the park is, and which days you go.

Stanley Park is a large (1000 acres) urban park right next to downtown Vancouver. It captures the natural beauty of the area with forests of giant trees and a seawall with incredible ocean and mountain views. Yet it has lots of facilities for visitors including an aquarium and restaurants.Recommended for

Stanley park in one word is "BIG". This is a massive park right in the city. we took a hop on - hop off city tour bus which dropped us off in Stanley Park and then there was another bus which gave us a tour of the park. Places to visit are the Totem poles and Prospect point which gives you a great view of the Bay and the Lions Gate bridge.
Time permitting you should also visit Beaver lake and take a couple of hikes in the forest. We spotted an owl on one of the hikes. There are two restaurants within the park as well, one is the Tea house and the other is called the "Fish house" I believe, if memory serves me right. At prospect point there are also other cafes/restaurants. Taking a bike ride around the Sea wall would be great too. Also the lost lagoon is pretty nice. There's also a beautiful rose garden in the park where a lot of wedding photography is done but we skipped this as we'd already seen better at the Butchart Gardens.
Vancouverites are lucky to have a massive 1000 acre park right within the city. Beautiful place.

Stanley Park is the arguably the best park on the West Coast. I would characterize it as the West Coast's answer to NY's Central Park. It is absolutely huge. Great views of the Vancouver skyline and other parts of the city since it is so large. A must visit when in Vancouver.Recommended for

Occupying nearly 1000 acres, Stanley Park is one of the world's most beautiful urban parks, situated right next to downtown Vancouver. Vancouverites head here to rollerblade, run or cycle the 8.8km seawall that encircles the park and offers up great views of the mountains and English Bay. Stanley Park is home to three (yes, three!) lovely beaches, swimming pools, cafes, restaurants and more hiking trails. You might be lucky enough to spot a family of otters swimming alongside you, a friendly raccoon or any of the thousands of animals that call this park home.

I loved everything about Vancouver and the Stanley Park is my favorite. This 1001-acre'urban' park is almost as large as the entire downtown area of Vancouver, it's really got everything a nature lover could ask for. The park is home to the beautiful Jubilee fountain resides in the Lost Lagoon Lake accompanied by resident birds, fields of flowers blossoms in the Stanley Pavillion and the Rose Garden, multiple hiking trails shaded by the tall tree canopy, Canada's largest aquarium, Prospect point which offers a gorgeous view of North Vancouver across the bridge, and if that's not enough, the entire park is surrounded by the tantalizing Pacific ocean with the Seawall extends 8.8 miles around the island overlook the Lion's bridge. A day would be well spent in Stanley Park alone.

Stanley Park is the soul of the city. Cross it on a horse-drawn carriage or bike, roller blade or simply stroll, though be warned, at 1,000 acres it's slightly bigger than New York's Central Park, making it the largest urban park in North America. Stanley Park is wrapped with a sea wall that offers nine kilometres of spectacular waterfront views.
