Parks are a part of any place’s heritage, and Stanley Park is a shining example of it with a lot of history. Stanley Park was first opened to the public in 1888 and has since been a gem in the Vancouver, Canada landscape.
Stanley Park was created with visitors in mind and had a fantastic play area for kids and adults alike, where you can enjoy both indigenous plants and those that are exotic to the region. You can ride the Stanley Park Train designed to look just like the Canadian Pacific Railway Engine #374. The train is part of the park year-round and does offer special holiday rides like the Easter train, Bright Nights Train, Urban Forest train and even a Ghost Train for Halloween.
If the train and the play areas were not enough, you could also enjoy a fantastic locally sourced meal at the Prospect Point Café located inside the park. You can also bring your food and dine at the 200 seat patio pavilion, The Teahouse Restaurant, the Waterfall Café or any designated picnic areas.
You can also visit the park’s public beaches that make for a fantastic day and a stunning adventure. The park features several gift shops where you can get souvenirs of your trip and where you can also get snacks and concessions. The park is also host to several food cart vendors that come from time to time to offer guests some truly delightful concessions.
Stanley Park is a gem that will delight and mesmerize your family and make for a great day out of doors. If you are looking for a great Vancouver attraction, Stanley Park should undoubtedly be on your list of places to visit to see all the splendour and wonder that it has to offer those that pass through its gates.
