North America's third-largest park draws eight million visitors per year, many of whom may skate or walk past you on the Seawall, a scenic, 5.5-mile path running along the water on the park's perimeter. It's just one of many trails among the park's 1,000 acres, which also house an aquarium, nature center and other recreational facilities.

Wonderful to have such a large greenspace in the heart of the city. We enjoyed adventuring around the park on a cold snow day.

I ran around the sea wall route on a beautiful January morning. It was beautiful. Every corner that a ran around offered a spectacular new view. There were many bikers, runners and walkers so I felt very safe running on my own. It's about 9km...More

We visited park in a clear winter day. It was cold but view was awesome. We stopped by Totem Poles, Brockton Point and Prospect Point. Strongly recommend to go even just few hours.

It was unfortunately freezing and rainy the day we visited but we still loved Stanley Park. It is just beautiful and feels like you are out in the middle of the wilderness rather than in a city. The totem poles are a must see whilst...More

From viewing the Totem Poles from the Aboriginal people, to the aquarium, or the miniature railway for the younger ones or just taking a stroll through the park, a very beautiful place to visit.

Spent most of the day taking the sea wall path as well as some trails through the middle amongst the redwood and Douglas firs. Highly recommend spending some time looking at the totem poles which are crafted with amazing skill

Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up
close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy
expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views,
beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical
getaway spot for friends and families, especially as
it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its
best equestrian outlets.

Lots of walking and if the weather is suitable, Stanley Park is fantastic for cycling. Great souvenir shop near the totems as well if you are into gifts. Plenty of places for amazing photography so take a camera.

do something different and explore the "inner" park. You are never too far away from "civilisation". Well defined paths that few people tread. Some interesting sights especially from a nature point of view.

There are no lockers unless you potentially go to pool area but I doubt they would fit anything as big as common luggage. Best way to see park is via bicycle!
