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.

Run around Stanley Park in the morning and you won't be disappointed. It is roughly 6-8 miles around the perimeter "sea wall" and depending your starting point. I started near the convention center so I think it was closer to 8 miles. Definitely try some of the inland trails too.

We walked around the park on seawall for about 3 km and then we headed inland through the tall trees and lakes. It was truly magical and we loved it.

Very large park. All the 'attractions" are spaced although still walkable. Beautiful views, nature, and nature trails. Can be used as "country' getaway if tired of the business of the city life. If tourist perhaps not a good idea to plan a whole day around Stanley park, especially if you wan to sight see. Food places are pricey.

Stanley is a big park situated on a peninsular jutting out from, and to the west of, downtown Vancouver. In fact the park is so big there are patches of forests that make you feel like you are way out in the middle of nowhere, well away from the big city. The Vancouver Aquarium is situated here, as is a... More

A walk around the Stanley Park is a must. You have to plan a half day for that. Also a great idea is to rent a bike. Many stores where you can rent such a thing are there around the park.

No visit to Vancouver is complete without a visit to Stanley Park. Consistently rated the best park in North America and the world it is an urban forest right in the heart of a big city. Drive around the perimeter in your car and take a trip over the Lion's Gate Bridge for fantastic views of the downtown core; bicycle,... More

I was amazed when I went the first time to Stanley Park, it is beatiful and such a nice way to spend your time. Went there nearly every weekend while I was in Vancouver. You can run through the seawall, hike in the many trails, rent a bike, or just sit down and enjoy the nature that surrounds you. I... More
