Le parc Stanley est un parc urbain de 404,9 hectares (1000 acres) qui se situe à Vancouver, en Colombie-Britannique. Le parc a été officiellement ouvert le 27 septembre 1888, où il a été baptisé du nom de Frederick Stanley, Gouverneur général du Canada de l'époque.

Il est le troisième plus grand parc urbain d'Amérique du Nord, étant 10 % plus étendu que celui de Central Park à New York et mesurant presque la moitié de Richmond Park.

Le parc attire environ huit millions de visiteurs chaque année2, incluant à la fois les touristes et les habitants, qui viennent pour ses installations récréatives et ses attributs naturels. Une corniche (seawall) de 8,8 kilomètres (5,5 miles) qui permet de faire le tour du parc, est utilisée par 2,5 millions de marcheurs, cyclistes et skaters chaque année3. Une grande partie du parc est boisée avec un demi-million d'arbres dont certains atteignent 76 mètres de haut (250 pieds) et une centaine est âgée de 100 ans ou plus.

Le parc dispose de plus de 200 km (125 miles) de chemins et routes, qui sont surveillés par la police montée du Vancouver Police Department6. Le Projet pour espaces publics a classé Stanley Park comme le 16e meilleur parc au monde et le 6e meilleur parc en Amérique du Nord.

    We enjoyed our walk along a section of the seawall. Unfortunately, in 2007, some of it was still closed due to the major storm the year before. We also walked past many of the downed trees that were still being removed.

    No matter the moment of the day, walking on the seawall is relaxing. This is also a place where the water meet with earth. The scenery is a delight for the eyes. A great escape from the city without going out of town.

    Love this place- its a short Rollerblade from my house in kits.

    Be cautious that there is only a one-way bike trail to reduce cyclist pedestrian crashes! Worth it to take a day and stroll the coast looking out into the bay- especially worth it at dusk or dawn!

    In January 2016 my mom and I had spent a week in Vancouver, British Columbia. We had spend an entire day at Stanley Park and we took our time to walk the seawall. We took the time to take in the breath taking ocean view and smell, and living in Leduc, Alberta you don't get a view like this everyday. being in Vancouver for a week made me realize how beautiful mother natures creations in this world are. It made me realize that being in such a breathtaking environment can really relax you. I went from stressing out about so much to totally relaxed and calm. Just being around the beautiful scenery and the amazing ocean smell gave me complete relaxation and was pure serenity.

    I went around the Seawall by foot, but I've also done it by bike before. Lovely views and Stanley park is such a cool place! We saw horse drawn carriages riding around and got to play on the shore.
