5. Stanley Park
Stanley Park is located in the city center. It is a huge park and offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown. There are some beautiful hiking trails and a path along the waterfront for walking and cycling. Stanley Park is a lush peninsula park with huge trees next to downtown Vancouver. Inland, the park offers many activities.
Spectacular views are a standard throughout the park. Many visitors choose the seawall as the fastest way to circle the large and beautiful park. It’s a 10-kilometer loop that starts in Coal Harbor and surrounds the peninsula via Brockton Point, the Lions Gate Bridge, Third Beach, Second Beach and Lost Lagoon.
