Stanley Park

Welcome to Stanley Park, Vancouver's first, largest, and most beloved urban park!

Designated a national  historic site of Canada, Stanley Park  is a magnificent green oasis in the midst of the heavily built urban landscape of Vancouver.

Explore the 400-hectare natural West Coast rainforest and enjoy scenic views of water, mountains, sky, and majestic trees along Stanley Park's famous Seawall. Discover kilometres of trails, beautiful beaches, local wildlife, great eats, natural, cultural and historical landmarks, along with many other adventures. The park offers a wide range of unforgettable experiences for all ages and interests.

The colourful 2015 Stanley Park official map and guide is out!

This year's map emphasizes the park's First Nations heritage, and spotlights the spectacular Seawall and beautiful forest, an urban wilderness in the heart of the city.
