Create an itinerary including Stanley Park
Bike, hike, swim, and explore at Stanley Park, Vancouver's beloved recreational area. In addition to its thick forests, the historical park features large swathes of wetlands and seashores, hugely popular with nature lovers and impassioned trekkers. Giant trees hundreds of years old provide plenty of fresh air to Vancouver's downtown, while a lengthy network of paved and unpaved trails let you connect with nature and learn about the local ecology. Landscaped flower gardens serve as idyllic backdrops for snapping a few photos, and several eateries offer both indoor and alfresco dining within the park's grounds. A visit to Stanley Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Vancouver trip itinerary maker website to plot your vacation.

  • Absolutely wonderful park, my family and I had a blast walking around and looking at the beautiful Vancouver skyline. I enjoyed the walk along the perimeter of the park along the water, and saw my first ever floating Chevron on the harbor! Cool totem poles, walkway, garden, geocaches, tree trunk arch, statues, informational signs, and views. The atmosphere was wonderful, with lots of families and people walking around and enjoying the wonderful Sunday afternoon. I highly recommend visiting this park if you’re in the Vancouver area!
  • Best park I visited ever. Beautiful maintained. We preferred walking over the side of water rather than taking cycles and horse carriage. A very pleasant place. Walking paths and cycling paths are separated here Our eye will lock many spots in the park like aquariums, bridges, Broadways, skyscrapers, cruises and so on. Words are not enough to describe this place. I think a single day is not enough to watch the park fully. No entrance fee.
