Stanley Park

About This Point Of Interest

Stanley Park

As Vancouver’s oldest greenspace, Stanley Park has a special place in the hearts of the locals. The 405-hectare (1,001-acre) park is as close as possible to what it was 100 years ago, with large areas still densely forested. The park is also home to the Vancouver Aquarium, the Stanley Park Totem Poles, and the famous Vancouer Seawall that protects the shores of the peninsula from the forces of the ocean. The park is always popular with locals and visitors and offers a wonderland of forest activities including running and cycling, an outdoor summer theatre, and Klahowya Village & Miniature Railway. Whether sitting in the forest at the Teahouse Restaurant or taking a stroll along the seawall, the views are breathtaking, and are sure to put a visit to Stanley Park on every sightseeing agenda.

Hop-On With Us


Our Hop-On, Hop-Off PARK Route has 6 stops with-in the park. Hop off each of the stops from P6-P11 and explore all the main highlights of the park, or Hop Off at Stop P12, and rent a bike to ride the famous Stanley Park Seawall.

Variety is the spice of life, so for each of our Hop-on Hop-off tours we dish it up and you get to choose. We operate two types of vehicles, and while both buses travel the same routes, each offers a very different tour experience. Of course, we suggest you take the time to enjoy both, but we won't make you. Channelling the spirit of San Francisco, our Trolley's will have you ready for a jolly time. The driver will provide you with live commentary of your tour, lending a local's authentic take on the magic that makes Vancouver great. But as fun as our trolley tours are, our clear-top buses are equally special. Your view of the city will be like no other as you tour the streets with the wind in your hair, experiencing our vibrant downtown with all of your senses. You will be accompanied by a recorded commentary that is available in multiple languages.
