About the Park...

    Dedicated by Governor-General of Canada, Lord Stanley, back in 1889 as the park within the city centre. Stanley Park covers 400-hectare (1,000-acre) and is located right next to the commercial core of Vancouver. It has about 8 km of shoreline with views of the North Shore mountains across the Burrard Inlet and distant glimpse of the Vancouver Island. The Seawall Promenade that encircles the outer edge of the park is a popular attraction for bikers, roller-bladers, and pedestrians.
