Walk or bike

Pedestrians and cyclists can take advantage of a number of routes linking the peninsula of Stanley Park to downtown Vancouver and beyond.

Access the west side of the park off English Bay along the Seawall, using the Seaside Bike Route. If you are cycling, make your way to Second Beach and the interior of the park. Those on foot can continue walking around the park on the Seawall.

Or access the park from the Georgia Street entrance, which connects to major transportation links like the SeaBus and Skytrain via the Coal Harbour Route portion of the Seawall.

Take transit

TransLink's #19 bus will get you in to Stanley Park. The bus stops at:

  • Stanley Park Drive and Pipeline Road near Lost Lagoon

If you are taking the SeaBus to Vancouver, you can either take a short walk to transfer to the #19, or walk, bike or rollerblade along the waterfront Coal Harbour Route to Stanley Park. There is no public transit service around the park. Visit the TransLink website for more information.
