The Vancouver Seawall was created to prevent the sea from encroaching on to the cliffs that surround Stanley Park in Vancouver. It is indeed a unique attraction. Although the purpose of the pathway created was completely different, the wall pathway has become a meeting point and tourist attraction like no other.
The views from the path are simply stunning. The mighty mountains on one side and the lovely green water on the other; what could possibly be better? The place is very popular with pedestrians and cyclists (although the two don’t necessarily get along) in the evenings. And while it is very popular with the locals, tourists will love this place too.
There is a rollerblading area nearby as well and you can sit on the steps or even fish in the area. If you are going to Stanley Park, then the Seawall is a definite must visit that is worth your while.
A part of the Stanley Park, the Seawall in Vancouver is a pedestrian stone wall constructed with a pathway used to ride bicycles. The view of the Biurrard Inlet from here is refreshing with the Royal Yatch club and the Deaman’s Island seen at a distance. If you are visiting during afternoons, carry a picnic basket with you to make the most of the place while a ferry or an Aqua-bus ride along the seawall is perfect if you don’t want to walk the extensive 22 kilometres.
The nearby Kitsilano Beach is a local favorite during summers while the wildlife, greenery and the gorgeous view all along the seawall, is where the charm lies.

Enjoy an intimate tour of the beautiful city of Vancouver with a knowledgeable local tour guide. Walk along the scenic seawall to the beautiful Stanley Park and visit its stunning rose gardens, fascinating totem pole displays, and famous Lost Lagoon.
It is one of my favorite walks (long walks) in Vancouver. The sea wall its all border of Stanley Park, and if you take the time to walk it you will see beautiful highlights, take a break and do picnic during your way and relax. If you walk the sea wall you shoyld keep your eyes open! Because you will be surrounded by beautiful wild life such as Harbour Seals, Royal Eagles and if is your lucky day maybe a whale that is chilling around (it happens one or 2 times per year). So enjoy the sea wall!!!!
Easily one of the most beautiful things about the city of Vancouver. Rain or shine, I always enjoy a stroll around the Seawall. It's a lovely place to be alone, or with someone special. The Vancouver skyline acts as a busy contrast to the greenery of Stanley Park, which in turn sets a calming foil to the city. I've yet to walk all the way around Stanley Park, but have gotten close; maybe one day. The Seawall is a waterfront experience everyone can enjoy.
We live in paradise 🌴The Vancouver seawall is a rejuvenating walking and cycling path filled with the awesome beauty of the city, the ocean, nature, blue skies, spectacular sunsets, boats, and people.
It's absolutely beautiful. You can get great views of the city. It's a must-see when visiting Vancouver.
Great seaside experience. Get some exercise by walking, running, or biking through this beautiful gem of a park.
