Have tea in the park, watch the fish breeze through their tanks at the Aquarium, and smell the salty air as you walk around the Seawall.

Located in Downtown Vancouver, Stanley Park offers a green oasis to city dwellers, stretching over 1,000 acres of land. Lord Stanley of Preston opened the park in 1888; at the time it was a haven for gathering various material and food. Today, Stanley Park is home to half a million trees, the Vancouver Aquarium, the Malkin Bowl, carved totem poles, monuments, beaches, a lighthouse, and plenty of trails to take in the fresh air. If hiking through forests isn't your thing, take advantage of the Seawall where you can run, walk, cycle or rollerblade the 5.5 miles around Stanley Park. Once you have worked up an appetite, stop and grab a cold drink and delicious bite to eat at one of the many restaurants in Stanley Park.
