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.

It's the first place I'd take any visitor to Vancouver. Old growth forests, rose garden, beaches, & the Seawall make it Vancouver's playground.

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.

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.

We had to walk through Stanley Park to get to the Vancouver Marine Aquarium and we were struck by it's pristine beauty. This park borders the downtown, and is almost surrounded by the Pacific ocean. This is a naturally evolved forest and not a landscaped park by a professional landscaper.

I love Stanley Park and all its beauty. I recently ran a half marathon through this park and fell in love with it all over again. The previous few times I visited this place were in vehicles with minimal walking. This time, I got up close and personal.
I love that it is so accessible from other tourist attractions so you won't waste time going to the middle of nowhere to visit this place. There are lots of good places to run and also places to just sit down and people watch while you picnic. Parking was never an issue for me when I came.
