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.

I guess going through Stanley Park and being among the trees as it's not often you can get such tranquility like that in a place so near to a large city like Vancouver.

Clement is a great tour guide. He knows Vancouver well and delivered a great experience. We took the bike tour in our first morning in BC, and it was a great way to get our bearings around the city.

I travelled with my husband on 5th April 2022. It was a great experience to be on a horse drawn tour of Stanley park. Our tour guide was fantastic. She offered us blankets as it was a very cold windy day. We appreciate it. I would recommend the tour to my friends

The history and storytelling were both superb! I don't have anything further to say. I find it incredibly annoying that I am unable to submit my review without saying more.

Vancouver Secrets of Stanley Park Walking Tour
This is a lovely walk in Stanley Park. Our guide Glenn gave us a great insight as to the relationship of the native peoples who settled in the park and their fight with the various local government's authorities to remain in their settlements. Highlights- History of the craftsman who built the Sea Wall. -Deadman Island -Buried grounds -History of the native settlements Glenn's vast knowledge of all the secrets of Stanley Park was amazing. I have lived in Vancouver for 45 years and learned so much from this walk through the park. Highly recommend this tour.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • 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.

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.
