The Basics

There are several ways to experience the beauty and history of Stanley Park. Pass by on a Vancouver sightseeing tour, take a guided tour along its wooded trails, or check out the First Nations Interpretive Walking Tour, which explains the local indigenous history and culture.

Alternatively, get creative on a guided photography tour of the temperate rain forest before exploring the park’s winding cycling and hiking paths. Meanwhile, families with kids can stop at the Vancouver Aquarium and the Stanley Park Miniature Train.

Fun trip through Stanley Park
David, our bike tour guide, took us on a fun jaunt through Stanley Park and a bit of downtown Vancouver. It was a pretty easy, smooth ride and a few stops to learn about the area. I highly recommend this tour with David & Cycle City!

Bike Tour of Downtown Vancouver and Stanley Park
Our guide Jermey was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and patient. He was vigilant on the roads making sure all the guests feel safe while riding on the roads of Vancouver downtown. We were riding the bike after 2 decades and this route is absolutely fine for missed bike riders

Bike Tour of Downtown Vancouver and Stanley Park
I arrived with my 15 year old daughter on the second day of our first to Vancouver. One of us was a little sceptical/jet lagged but we got to the rendezvous on time. Jeremy was an outstanding host. We learnt a great deal about Vancouver, its history, culture and politics. It helped that we had the perfect weather but Vancouver is extremely cyclist-friendly with demarcated cycle lanes. A particular highlight was the circuit of Stanley Park but the entire tour was the perfect introduction to a fabulous city. Jeremy even produced a large tub of blueberries at the regular breaks to keep us going! Many thanks to Jeremy from both me and Edie (it was a real highlight of our trip).

Things to Know Before You Go

  • A free shuttle bus travels around the park, though many opt to bike or walk instead.

  • Old-fashioned horse-drawn carriages offer 1-hour tours and are a great—and romantic—way to get an overview of the area.

  • Restaurants and cafés are scattered throughout the park.

  • Stanley Park is wheelchair and stroller accessible for the most part, but some more rugged trails may be off-limits.

How to Get There

Stanley Park is located at the west end of downtown Vancouver and the park’s information booth is located near the Georgia Street entrance. Walking and cycling paths lead from downtown to the peninsula where the park is located, but the TransLink #19 bus and Skytrain are also options. Alternatively, park your car nearby using a daily parking pass.

When to Get There

The park is open year-round; March to November bring the mildest weather, and it can get quite cold in the winter. To have the park (more or less) to yourself, the best times to visit are typically early morning and mid- to late afternoon.

Where to Find Stanley Park’s Best Views

Certainly one of the best views in Stanley Park is from the seawall looking over to the Vancouver skyline and Coal Harbour. For natural beauty, it’s tough to beat the views of the surrounding mountains, but the rose garden and beaches come close. There’s also the wildlife, including bald eagles, beavers, and birds. Culturally-speaking, the First Nations art and totem poles are a must, while ther scenic spots include the Lost Lagoon, Hollow Tree, and Beaver Lake.
