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.

Bicycles are available for rent. They are very well maintained. This was a highlight of our vacation. Note that you have to re-dock the bikes every 30 minutes in one of the many bike racks where you check them out. You can check them right back out and go another 30 minutes but If you are going to ride all the way around the water edge of the park, their Is an area that is too far between racks and you will have to pay for additional time because you can't make it to the next rack in the allotted 30 minutes.
Big shady park with lots of summer events. Can easily spend the whole day walking the perimeter (wear comfy shoes) or exploring areas like the ride gardens & beaches. Family friendly. Amazing tourist stop. And if you're lucky enough to live nearby, a beautiful relaxing walk at the end of a working day.
One of the best urban park I have ever visited. The facilities seem well cared for and the views are worth the trip. Kudos to Vancouver. When I visited in August, the crowds were heavy. It made my bike ride less relaxing. It is best to plan to go during off hours.
Was a great park and really fun to walk with the family. The little one enjoyed the splash park and the multiple play grounds they have in the park as well. Over all wonderful park for both Forrest and ocean views well hanging with the family. Only down side is the washrooms. They are VERY dirty and don't suggest anyone using them!! Maybe some cleaners are in need of hire for regular washroom checks.
