Owner description: 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.

lord stanley willed this huge achorage of flora and fauna to the city of vancouver providing no advertisements or businesses were allowed. there is a anack bar/ice cream parlour at prospect point. prospect point provides phenomenal views of north vancouver, lions agate bridge and the burrard inlet. from there you can walk a trail thru the natural beuty of the pacific north west forest beach or walk to third beach for a swim or to watch the sun set. there are swings, teetor todders and other children play stuff. if you don't want to drive to prospect point thru the huge red wood tree so big it stradles a one lane street,near the totem poles at the entrence of the park is another children's playground. walk along the sea wall or cross the bridge to the rose garden then on to a fast food restaurant or if you want fine dining there a great restarant that allows you to enjoy lunch or dinner in an indoor atrium. the food'sfirst class.

the park is home to the vancouver aquarium and the children's train ($2.) and if the animal rights folk fail, a petting zoo. you can picnic in the park or leave it for local restauants on robson street near the park entrence. easily accesable by bus (#19 stanley park) or car (the park is the entrance to the lions gate bridge leading to north van). the park is huge you can chose a walk on the sea wall or thru the forest or visit one of the many gardens or go to the beach or one of the many children's attraction. you can easily spend a day here.

What an amazingly scenic view of British Columbia. Suggest going near sundown so you can see how the surrounding landscape lights up.

Maybe it was the rain, maybe I'm spoiled by having seen other great city parks-but I didn't think this was amazing. It is a great area and wonderful that it is undeveloped and right in the city. Fantastic views over the city and the water.

This is truly a magnificent place to visit. The park is huge, there is a waterpark on the north side for kids to frolic in during the summer. The vancouver aquarium is also located in the park. There's lost lake to explore in the centre of the park, and the seawall is an awesome walk all around the outside of the park. The seawall is a wonderful bike ride, and has wonderful, constantly changing views. One of the nicest things to do on a sunny day in vancouver.
