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
Love the view. Great place to spend the whole day with the family. You get to see the Lion gate bridge from the park. Plenty of parking lots if you decided to drive. There is also a water park which we didn't get to explore. You can also rent a bike and cycle all the way around the park and back. Explore the park at your own pace, you'll be surprised what it has to offer.
Absolutely stunning park. Fun for the kids, adventurers, sightseers, photographers, and those who just like to relax. I was surprised at the variety and the simplicity of so many things to do. Things that I would have never thought to be as enjoyable as it was. While others activities exceeded my expectations. People can rent and bike around the park. There are nature trails throughout the park. Plenty of green space to have a picnic. There are cafes with vegetarian options and they sell kombucha! There are also plenty of benches to just sit and enjoy the greenery, mountains and the water. There's even a small water area for kids to play and dry off. I could stay out here for hours.
We had a ts half day in and around Stanley Park this morning. Hired bikes which all seemed brand new and well equipped, as well as a trailer for the 2 year old. Ride through the woods and right around the park trail including cooking off at the free water park around half way round the circuit. Highly recommended for just about anyone who has ridden a bike before. Allow 3 hours due a leisurely pace with short stops.
We went to Stanley Park as part of our honeymoon in Vancouver. It was beautiful! We enjoyed the nature, the walk around the point, and the aquarium. We ate at the restaurant in the middle of the park and it was so good! Everyone was friendly and helpful with directions etc. Some things were a little pricey as it's definitely a tourist attraction, but it was well worth the money spent. I would definitely go again anytime. We drove there from Spokane, WA and it was worth the trip. The aquarium was fun, but next time I would honestly skip it to enjoy the park more! We went on a weekday during September so it was gloriously empty. Definitely a great trip overall.
Stanley Park is definitely a great place to visit if you are in Vancouver. You probably need at least one day to experience all the fun things. Horse drawn carriage, cycling, and so on. I also would recommend renting a bike and ride around the bike trail in the evening before the sunset. So much to see.
