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.

Must do!
My husband and I took the horse-drawn tour as something special on our honeymoon. Even in November's cold and rain, it was a wonderful experience. We'll definitely be back! All the staff was pleasant and our tour guide was awesome!

Vancouver Secrets of Stanley Park Walking Tour
Even though we had a quite large (19) group, Theo did a super job of keeping everyone engaged and interested. We had no trouble hearing him….even with the occasional seaplane take-off in the nearby harbor. I’m really glad we decided to take this tour….it was interesting, as well as educational.

We loved the nice informative trip. We got right on time for the last trip of the day. The trip was nice and my child loved the brothers (horses). It was a bit long for my 4 year old but still enjoyed it!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • 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.
