Stanley Park is one of the most popular parks in the world and is one of Vancouver’s top attractions. Tourists and nature cross miles just to take a walk through Stanley Park and see its gardens, lush greenery, and totem poles. It is 1,000 acres and it lies very close to downtown. It is full with wildlife, plants, trees and natural beauty. You can ride, walk, bus or rollerblade to and through the park. Dine at the Rose Garden Tea Room, the Sequoia Grill or at the Fish House and enjoy some fresh seafood dishes.

You will find many landmarks within Stanley Park such as the Siwash Rock, Nine O’Clock Gun, sculptures, Prospect Point, the Lost Lagoon, and Beaver Lake. Take a walk along the seawall that goes from one end of the park to the next, or enjoy a picnic on some of the parks soft grass. There is something for everyone of every age group to do in Stanley Park.

Try some of the family attractions such as the Miniature Train, playgrounds, the Vancouver Aquarium, or take the kids to second beach swimming pool for a day of fun in the sun.

Look at a Stanley Park Map to become more familiar with the area. You can catch the Stanley Park Shuttle to get around the park and see Prospect Point,as well as Second and Third Beach.
