Read MoreShow Less
No fine-weather visit to Vancouver is complete without a walk around Stanley Park’s seawall, and starting or finishing a seawall stroll from the Lost Lagoon Nature House just makes sense. Known for its photo-worthy views, large fountain, and sometimes even a few swans, Lost Lagoon is Stanley Park’s largest body of water and one of Vancouver’s most recognizable landmarks. At the edge of the lagoon, tucked away in a former boathouse, is the Lost Lagoon Nature House. Operated by the Stanley Park Ecological Society, it is packed with interesting things to do and see.
From beavers to bats, interpretive displays of every species found in Stanley Park help make the learning at the Lost Lagoon Nature House fun and interactive. Whether you want to know about a particular bird species that lives in Stanley Park or you’d like to learn more about the park’s multiple restoration projects, the friendly staff members are almost always on hand to answer any questions you may have. Insider’s tip: sometimes the staff members at the Nature House lead bird-watching excursions for the public, and you’ll get to check out some of the park’s more special (and secret!) places if you join in.
The Lost Lagoon Nature House is located on the southeast shore of Lost Lagoon, under the viewing plaza at the north end of Alberni Street in Vancouver’s Stanley Park. During winter hours (September-June), the site is open on the weekends from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. In July and August, it’s open daily (except Mondays) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
