So now I will tell you about Stanley Park in Vancouver. This park puts Central Park in NYC
to shame. It is over 1,000 acres in size. It was opened in 1888. Here below is a link to the
park's website. Below is an aerial view of the park. You can see it is surrounded by water
on all but one side.
Here is an aerial view of Lion's Gate Bridge as it enters Stanley Park. There are dense
woods with old growth trees, 120 miles of trails and roads. There is a 14 mile / 22 kilometre
paved seawall for Runners, bikers, and skaters that circles the park. There are a number of
beaches, a pool, an Aquarium, a number of public gardens, and a bowling lawn. There are
numerous overlooks of English Bay, lagoons, 4 restaurants, 6 concession stands, a miniature
train, various sculptures, Gardens, and totem poles.
Here are some pictures of the totem poles, the flower gardens, views of the City skyline, etc.
