Fun at Stanley Park


For us, no visit to Vancouver is complete without going to Stanley Park. This park is one of those spots that has something for everyone. Stanley Park is 1,001 acres and borders downtown Vancouver. It's mostly surrounded by the waters of the Burrard Inlet and English Bay. I always enjoy the city views from the park's Seawall, which is 5 miles long and loops around the park. The really cool thing about the park is its a rain forest consisting of Douglas Fir, western red cedar, and western hemlock.

On this particular visit, we checked out the Brockton Point Lighthouse. This cute red and white lighthouse was first lit in 1915 and is just 34 feet tall. My son and I love lighthouses and visit one every chance we get. Another first for us on this visit was taking a ride on the Stanley Park Railway. This Miniature train ride is 15 minutes long and is great for families. This scenic ride takes you through the park's forest and is narrated so you can learn more about the park.
