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.

Stanley Park is a great place for a walk, the beach, just chilling out. To see it best hire bikes and cycle the sea wall.

Trees, park areas, coastline - just an amazing place. Saw it from land and the air and it is magnificent. The trees are ancient and so tall. Visited the aquarium which was very interesting - particularly loved the sea otters!
