  Standing in Stanley Park - March 9, 2002

Favorite thing: Stanley Park is Vancouver's pride and joy. It's the epitome of Vancouver and one of the most beautiful urban parks in possibly the world!

Basically, Stanley Park is a 1000 acre forest, but it's located in downtown Vancouver. Within a matter of minutes you can walk from the downtown core of Vancouver into a peaceful forested park - and the trees are huge! The easily accessable feel of wilderness is half the beauty of Stanley Park. It's literally right at the doorstep of the downtown bustle.

Here you can enjoy the tranquilness of the forested trails, or the quaint beauty of the rose gardens, or you can enjoy live theatre at the open-air concert bowl "Theatre Under the Stars". Or take the seawall around and explore the beaches. Stroll along Lost Lagoon and admire the birds, or go hike to Prospect Point and enjoy the views!

You can spend an entire day at Stanley Park and still not see anything!
