Stanley Park - Review
Vancouver already has a very rich natural beauty, beautiful green trees, the gorgeous coast and everything in between. What make it better are these beautiful free parks that have been set up by the city. The verdant beauty of the city of Vancouver can be thoroughly enjoyed and experienced in these lovely parks.
But Stanley Park is much more. In many ways, it goes beyond being just a recreational area. It has become something of a cultural and social hub. If you are going with children, there are several activities to try out. The Vancouver Aquarium is inside the area. And besides, there are a lot of different play areas and two heated swimming pools inside the park. You can walk, cycle or run across the pathways.
If you are looking for a leisurely and memorable walk, you should try the Seawall which was created to prevent the place from flooding. This walk has become quite a huge tourist attraction in itself due to the amazing vistas of the sea it provides. If you are in Vancouver, this attraction is a definite must see. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Vancouver Itinerary 4 Days.

Stanley Park, Vancouver Reviews
It is such a delight to go there. Flowers and greenery makes me feel good. Ample fresh air and go place for bike rides. I love how big the park is. Its a place where you could spend the entire day and chill with the family and those small black squirrels who will give you accompany if you are alone in the park. The view of Lions Gate Bridge is also magnificent. A must visit place if you are here in Vancouver.
A very large but well maintained State park. It has number of varieties of plants, creepers, trees, etc. More than 100 years old trees exist in the park. Those interested can need at least two days to visit park completely. Besides greenery, it has very good aquarium which also has number of species of fishes, sea rock lions, dolphins shows and other sea creatures. Parking is available at number of places. Has wheelchair accessible parking and entrance.
This park has to be one of the best ones in the world. The bike lanes are well maintained and it is super scenic to bike around the entire park. It takes about 2 hours or so from one end all around and back to the city. This has been one of the best experiences in Vancouver and is highly recommended to all that go to Vancouver. You just need to find a bike shop and rent out either for a day or a few hours. The park also has an aquarium and many trails with different species of animals and insects.
Parque muito grande, cheio de coisas pra se ver, tem o aquário lá dentro e é possível andar o parque todo de bicicleta. O parque tem muitas cerejeiras e uma estátua de Shakespeare. Muito interessante! É uma das atrações principais, não tem como não conhecer. Very large park, full of things to see, there is the aquarium inside and it is possible to walk the whole park by bike. The park has many cherry trees and a statue of Shakespeare. Very interesting! It is one of the main attractions, it has no way of knowing.
By far the best place to go in Vancouver! This sprawling park has a bit of everything! Most love the Vancouver Sea Wall, which runs along the entire length of the park and offers stunning views of the ocean and mountains. It's easy to get lost in the beauty of it! There are plenty of gardens located within the grounds, including the lost lagoon and Beaver Lake. The miniature railway is a fun attraction with children, as well as the Vancouver Aquarium. Within the grounds are a variety of statues and monuments, including the Japanese Canadian War Memorial, to honour those who served in WWI. There are a variety of dining options within the park depending on your cravings. There are splash pads located on the north side of the park, perfect for hot summer days. Third Beach is also popular for swimming as is Second Beach (complete with the Second Beach Swimming Pool). Finally, Prospect Point is a great vantage point to take in, especially during sun-rise and sun set! You can get a great view of the mountains and the Lions Gate Bridge.
