Seawall In Vancouver - Review
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.

Seawall In Vancouver, Vancouver Reviews
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 distance bay. 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.
I actually just started running here after all these years and I love it. What a great place to take your mind off of the fact that you actually hate running and feel like quitting. The walk is split for walkers / runners and people on wheels to avoid annoying crashes. The scenery isn’t boring and follows the ocean shore - you will often see cranes, seals, and other nature if you’re watching. I just love the smell of the sea too and it puts lots of energy in my step. Doesn’t ever seem to be over crowded either, but maybe I’ve just been lucky.
Must-do amazing stroll in Vancouver, not to be missed! The Vancouver Seawall is a stunningly beautiful path that runs around parts of city and Stanley Park, dubbed “the world's longest uninterrupted waterfront path” at 28 km. And, it’s free. The path is well-paved, and the Stanley Park part of the path is divided between walkers/joggers (outside track along the water) and bikers/skaters (inside track). The bikers/skaters track can be quite busy with a wide variety of travelers from serious athletes to meandering groups. As a walker, I very much appreciated the traffic divide; you can walk casually and take pictures at leisure. Tip: if you’re a walker, be careful to look both ways before crossing the bikers/skater path into the interior of Stanley Park. The pictures from the path are amazing and vary at different points along the route, both the Stanley Park portion and the broader path: the Vancouver skyline, Coal Harbor, Burrard Inlet, Brockton Point Lighthouse, English Bay, activity in the water (seaplanes, boats, ships, etc.), North Vancouver and the mountains behind it, Lions Gate Bridge, False Creek, Granville Island, and so much more. You can also access Stanley Park’s outer perimeter attractions from the path. If your visiting Vancouver, you must take the time to get over to Stanley Park and walk part of the path—you’ll get great exercise, see some interesting people, and get some of the most amazing pictures. Highly recommended.
A Fabulous walk/cycle with amazing perspectives! The seawall, partially located in Stanley Park, was built in order to reduce erosion by the sea. It is about 30 km (19 miles) in length, but its muti-use by walkers, cyclists as well as "in line skaters" is about 22 kms (13 miles). Its construction was carried out between 1917-1980. It is the most heavily used part of Stanley Park. The dramatic sea views of the Park, as well as adjacent Vancouver and the sea make repeat visits very common! One can see many totem poles, the iconic Lion's Gate Bridge, False Creek, Canada Place as well as much beautiful scenery. It is a "must go" to place-- even for a short walk! I hope that this Review has been helpful.
It's been my backyard for a while, and after a year worth of runs, it's still as amazing as it was the first time I went. Just be sure to go early in the morning or in the evenings and avoid the weekends if you : - don't wanna stay stuck behind slow people if you're biking - don't like spending your time avoiding tourists left and right if you're running - wanna get the best out of the seawall and enjoy the peace and quiet of the ocean with a beautiful sunrise / sunset. But whatever you choose, if 10 km doesn't scare you, just go for it, you won't regret it.
