Girl In A Wetsuit - Review

Siting on a rock off the shore of Stanley Park, the ‘Girl In A Wetsuit’ shows a beautiful diver looking wistfully at the horizon. Created by artist Elek Imredy, the life-size sculpture was placed on the boulder in 1973.

Take a walk around the Stanley Park Drive to see the beautiful statue inspired from ‘the little mermaid’. A visit to the Stanley Park later is the perfect way to spend the afternoon.

Girl In A Wetsuit, Vancouver Reviews

  • I thought it was a mermaid for the longest time. It's so cute and adds to the park. The view in the background is nice and represents the industry that has helped Vancouver prosper. Just one more awesome thing in an amazing park! Worth checking out at high tide and low tide.

  • The "Girl in a Wetsuit" is one of my favorite statues. There's something about her timeless elegance. She sits there eyeing the incoming tides from the English Bay, feeling the the cool breeze washing over her...anticipating that next wondrously magical dip. Oooo my beautiful world!! I hope those who read this will fall madly in love with their lives.

  • First time here and it was really cool. Can't really see much detail but there's a plaque to tell you what it is. Only bad part is the sulphur in the background. Wish that wasn't there but can't smell it so that's always good!

  • When people see this bronze sculpture on the north part of Stanley Park’s seawall, most think it’s a mermaid, very similar to the mermaid sculpture in the Copenhagen harbour. But it’s not, it’s actually a girl wearing a scuba mask and flippers, appropriately named “Girl in a Wetsuit”. The sculpture was created by a Vancouver artist named Elek Imredy after he was approached by a local lawyer named Douglas Brown who wanted to commission a sculpture inspired by Copenhagen’s mermaid sculpture. With the permission of the Vancouver Park Board, the project moved ahead. A plaster of paris mold of the sculpture was made, from which a fiberglass sculpture was cast. That fiberglass sculpture was flown to Italy where it was cast in bronze at the foundry of Giovanni and Angelo Nicci. On June 9th, 1972 the sculpture was set in place and unveiled to the citizens of Vancouver. It’s been an iconic landmark ever since. I took this shot late in the afternoon one day, using a 10 stop Neutral Density filter which created the wonderful velvet smoothness of the water, and the wispy look of the clouds.

  • It is a beatiful statue and nice place to takr photos
