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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Vancouver Itinerary 4 Days.

The seawall is a nice place to go for a walk or bike around. You can get good views of the city and of the water. There are paths that connect it with the road through Stanley, so one option is to just find some parking and then walk down. It is fairly accessible once you get down to it, but not all the paths to it are.
Great walk, run, skate, bike, roll around the park, lots of photo stops, fresh air and will def. get your steps up! Be sure to "stay in your lane" to allow everyone else to also enjoy the seawall!
A "must do tour "! Gorgeous views for the most beautiful pictures. Perfect for walking, running, cycling etc.
Highly recommend renting a bike from Spokes Bicycle Rentals across the street and heading over for a few hour ride. The sites of the skyline are wonderful. The further around you go, the more peaceful and serene it becomes. Harbours, inlets, totem poles, bridges, gardens, and occasional whales in the distant channel. We wish we would have had more time to explore the interior of the park and pack a lunch. We only rode around the perimeter due to time constraints, but such a great experience all around. The statue of Lord Stanley was a nice little find as well.
Vancouver treasure, part of the cities well planned bike path system, the Seawall courses along from the river to around Stanley Park. Well marked and maintained, benches for rest along the way, amazing views. Whether biking or hiking, a trip here is a must for every visitor.
