The Vancouver Park Board has launched the first-ever digital version of one of our most popular publications: the official map and guide to Stanley Park, our city's pre-eminent natural destination.

Make your visit a breeze with the user-friendly map and guide

The new Stanley Park digital map is a user-friendly guide with everything to plan a visit in one place: activities, sightseeing, food and gifts, transportation, and trails.

The digital map helps you find your way to attractions, services, and natural features in Stanley Park's magnificent coastal playground.

You can turn on and off activities and services on the map to customize and streamline your visit to the 400-hectare (1,000 acre) park.

"Our digital map shows this Board's commitment to using technology through new services that engage visitors and help them make the most of Vancouver’s outdoor experiences,” said Vancouver Park Board Chair Sarah Kirby-Yung.

The digital map is an addition to our long-standing printed version that's available in the park and at key tourist locations:

  • Peace Arch border crossing
  • Vancouver International Airport
  • Major Vancouver hotels
  • Car rental offices
  • Tourism Vancouver Visitor Centre

Premiere tourist destination

Stanley Park has more than eight-million visitors a year who take in the seawall, pristine beaches, gardens, and 500,000 cedar, fir, and hemlock trees in the coastal forest. In addition to being a premiere tourist destination, the park is a refuge for local urban dwellers and a complex ecosystem which provides vital habitat for birds and other wildlife.

It is North America’s third-largest city park and was honoured by Trip Advisor as the top urban oasis in the world in 2014.
 
The Vancouver Park Board has had stewardship of this great park since 1888. For almost 130 years, the Board has worked with partners to protect and preserve the natural beauty and sustainability of Stanley Park for generations to come.
